Lithium titanate (Li$$_{2}$$TiO$$_{3}$$) was chosen as a tentative reference material from viewpoints of good tritium recovery at low temperatures and of low tritium inventory and chemical stability for the breeding blanket in fusion reactors. The results of the irradiation tests of Li$$_{2}$$TiO$$_{3}$$ in the WWR-K of NNC-RK are described in this paper. 96at% $$^{6}$$Li-enriched Li$$_{2}$$TiO$$_{3}$$ pebbles and disks were prepared as the irradiation specimens and these specimens were irradiated during 220 days (5350 hours) at the reactor power of 6 MWt. Tritium release was measured continuously during irradiation tests and tritium release properties were evaluated. The mechanics describing generation and release of tritium from the irradiated Li$$_{2}$$TiO$$_{3}$$ were analyzed. There was estimated tritium loss due to recoil energy and binding of tritium in HTO, and there was calculated stationary tritium release due to diffusion under constant temperature and under thermal cycling.
