Electrochemical properties of zirconium in highly concentrated plutonium nitrate solution

Nakahara, Masaumi; Sano, Yuichi ; Abe, Hitoshi 

For evaluating the secular change of Pu evaporator made of Zr in the commercialized nuclear fuel reprocessing plant, electrochemical experiments were carried out with Pu nitrate solutions. The open circuit potentials of Zr increased with increasing Pu, HNO$$_{3}$$ concentrations and temperature. However, these experimental results imply that Zr has high corrosion resistance in Pu nitrate solutions.
