It is considered that tributyl phosphate (TBP) contained in spent PUREX solvent is well known to decompose into dibutyl phosphate (DBP) by radiation exposure. It has been found that DBP extracts U and Pu to form strong complexes. Since these complexes have stability even at low nitric acid solution, the spent solvent loaded with U and Pu for a long term is difficult to back extracted using nitric solution. Therefore, we have studied the treatment method for adsorbing of U and Pu from spent solvent using adsorbent. In this study, the method of Zr(IV) quantitative analysis using fluorescence spectroscopy was established. Moreover, adsorption behavior of Zr(IV) in DSP-n using adsorbents was evaluated. It was confirmed that non-woven fabrics with phosphoric acid type and imino diacetic acid type showed excellent adsorption ability.
