Development of Pt/ASDBC catalyst for room temperature recombiner of atmosphere detritiation system

Iwai, Yasunori; Sato, Katsumi; Yamanishi, Toshihiko

We have developed the hydrophobic Pt catalysts applicable for tritium oxidation in the presence of saturated water vapor at room temperature. A new type of hydrophobic catalyst, Pt/ASDBC, has been prepared by dipositing platinum on alkyl-styrene diviyl-benzene copolymer (ASDBC). Pt/ASDBC is more hydrophobic than Pt/SDBC that is a promising catalyst for the water detritiation system. The deposited platinum used to prepare Pt/ASDBC catalyst was 1.0 g/L. The value was approximately half of a commercial Japanese Pt/SDBC catalyst. Tritium oxidation tests of the catalysts using 3 GBq/m$$^{3}$$ of tritium were performed in the absence/presence of saturated water vapor at room temperature. Tritium oxidation sufficient for room temperature recombiner was demonstrated using Pt/ASDBC catalyst.
