Evaluation of apparent standard potentials of curium in LiCl-KCl eutectic melt

Shibata, Hiroki ; Hayashi, Hirokazu ; Koyama, Tadafumi*

The electrochemical properties of curium in a LiCl-KCl eutectic melt were studied in the temperature range of 718-823 K. A small electrochemical cell used in this study was designed for the electrochemical measurement with a small amount (1-20 mg) of the highly radioactive minor actinides contained in molten salts achieved in a hot cell. Our data of apparent standard potentials of a Cm$$^{3+}$$/Cm couple are reasonably in agreement with Osipenko's data (2011) and are lower than Martinot's data (1975). The validity of our data and the reported apparent standard potentials were discussed.
