Solvent cleanup method using activated alumina was discussed in this study. This method was one of candidate to remove TBP/$$n$$-dodecane degradation products. The degradation sample of 30% TBP/$$n$$-dodecane was prepared by irradiation (1.6 MGy) using $$^{60}$$Co $$gamma$$-source. The absorbed dose for sample was almost 1.6 MGy. The degradation products were qualitatively analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometer (GC-MS). After the irradiation, solvent cleanup was performed by activated alumina and the cleanup using alumina was examined by phase separation test with 3M HNO$$_{3}$$. As the result, it was found that hexane and long-chain alcohols were mainly generated as the n-dodecane degradation products by irradiation, and almost 70% of the TBP/$$n$$-dodecane degradation products were removed and the phase separation performance were improved by the cleanup using activated alumina.
