ホットセル内のミキサセトラ抽出器に${it N,N,N',N',N'',N''}$-ヘキサオクチルニトリロトリアセトアミド(HONTA)を適用し、マイナーアクチノイド(MA: Am及びCm)の分離を目的とした連続向流試験を実施した。高レベル廃液から回収したMA及び希土類(RE)を含有した0.08M(mol/dm$$^{3}$$)の硝酸をフィード液に使用して14時間の抽出試験を行った。${it n}$-ドデカンで0.05Mに希釈したHONTAはMAを抽出し、94.9%のAm及び78.9%のCmをMAフラクションに回収した。一方、Y, La及びEuはHONTAにほとんど抽出されず、99.9%のY、99.9%のLa及び96.7%のEuがREフラクションに移行した。Ndは一部がHONTAに抽出され、REフラクションへのNdの移行率は83.5%であった。計算コードを用いて求めた抽出器各段のMA及びREの濃度は実験値とほぼ一致した。この計算コードを用いた試算を行い、分離条件の最適化することでMAのMAフラクションへの移行率及びREのREフラクションへの移行率が$$geq$$99%となる結果を得た。

A continuous counter-current experiment to separate minor actinides (MAs: Am and Cm) was performed with ${it N,N,N',N',N'',N''}$-hexaochyl nitrilotriacetamide (HONTA) as an extractant. Nitric acid of 0.08 M (mol/dm$$^{3}$$) containing MAs and rare earths (REs) recovered from high-level waste was used as the Feed, and the experiment was conducted for 14 h. The ratios of Am and Cm recovered into the MA fraction measured 94.9% and 78.9%, respectively. HONTA hardly extracted Y, La, and Eu in the Feed (99.9% for Y, 99.9% for La, and 96.7% for Eu), most of which were distributed to the RE fraction. A portion of Nd was extracted by HONTA, and consequently the ratio of Nd in the RE fraction was 83.5%. The concentrations of MAs and some REs in each stage were calculated using a simulation code, and the results are consistent with the experimental values. This code indicates that the ratios of MAs in the MA fraction and REs in the RE fraction could be $$geq$$99% by optimizing separation conditions.
