We have been developing an advanced reprocessing system for spent FBR fuels based on precipitation method using pyrrolidone derivatives. The present study deals with durability of new precipitants with low and high hydrophobicity against $$gamma$$-irradiation and heating. Results showed that the precipitants with low hydrophobicity, N-n-butyl-2-pyrrolidone, N-propyl-2-pyrrolidone and N-iso-butyl-2-pyrrolidone, have enough durability against $$gamma$$-irradiation. The precipitants with high hydrophobicity, N-cyclohexyl-2-pyrrolidone, N-(1,2-dimethyl)propyl-2-pyrrolidone and N-neopenthyl-2-pyrrolidone, also have enough durability but gave lower precipitation yield when they irradiated with higher dose rate. The precipitation ability of all the precipitants did not changed by the heating at 50$$^{circ}$$C for three days.
