We have reported in the previous meeting that the accumulation of radiolytically produced hydrogen in high-level liquid waste is suppressed owing to some oxidation reaction catalyzed by Pd in the solution. In this report, we present the results of a hydrogen bubbling experiment with mock high-level liquid waste, made to clarify the species involved in the reaction. Analysis was made on nitrous acid and nitric acid in the solution, and also on nitrogen oxide in the outlet gas. It was found that although the concentration of nitrous acid present in the solution is small, nitrogen oxide, consisting mostly of NO, is detected in the gas at concentration corresponding to the decrease of nitric acid in the solution. The amount of the produced nitrogen oxide matched roughly with an estimated amount of reacted hydrogen, confirming that nitric acid is the oxidant.
