Evaluation of soluble organic compounds generated by radiological degradation of asphalt

not registered; Nishikawa, Yoshiaki*; not registered; not registered

The soluble organic compounds generated by radiological degradation of asphalt ($$gamma$$ ray) were confirmed as a part of influence of the bituminized waste degradation in the TRU waste repositry. Especially, the influence of the nitrate was focused on. As a result, the concentration of the soluble organic compounds generated by radiological degradation of asphalt (10MGy, $$gamma$$ ray which is correspond to absorbed dose of asphalt for 1,000,000years) were lower (each formic acid : about 50mg/dm$$^{3}$$, acetic acid : about 30mg/dm$$^{3}$$ and oxalic acid : about 2mg/dm$$^{3}$$) than that of the formic acid, the acetic acid and the oxalic acid which Valcke et al. had shown (the influence of the organic at the solubility examination which uses Pu and Am). Moreover, the change in the concentration of TOC and the soluble organic compounds (formic acid, acetic acid and oxalic acid) is little under the existence of nitrate ion. That is, the formic acid and acetic acid which can be organic ligands were generated little by oxidative decomposition of asphalt in the process that nitrate ion becomes nitrite ion by radiation. The influence of the soluble organic compounds by the radiological degradation of the asphalt ($$gamma$$ ray) on adsorption and solubility by the complexation of radionuclides in the performance assessment can be limited.
