Study on stability of Cs$$cdot$$Sr solvent impregnated resin against $$gamma$$ irradiation

Minimization of radioactive waste from reprocessing process of spent nuclear fuel is strongly desired. We develop an advanced technology for separation of heat generating elements (Cs and Sr) from high level waste to optimize radioactive waste by its characteristics. Some novel solvent impregnated resins (SIRs) were prepared and these SIRs indicated promising ability to separate Cs and Sr from other typical fission products dissolved in nitric acid solution. These adsorbents contacting with nitric acid solution were exposed to $$gamma$$ ray in a vial. After the $$gamma$$ irradiation, adsorbents were filtrated through a membrane filter. The adsorption capacity was examined by using irradiated adsorbents after drying. It is concluded that both SIRs maintained their high selectivity for Cs and Sr, respectively, after irradiation. Decreasing ratio of adsorption capacity by irradiation can be estimated from these results. It contributes significantly for conceptual design of separation plant.
