再処理施設における高レベル濃縮廃液の蒸発乾固事故では、ルテニウム(Ru)の挙動が重要視されている。これはRuが四酸化ルテニウム(RuO$$_{4}$$)等の揮発性化合物を生成し、硝酸(HNO$$_{3}$$),水(H$$_{2}$$O)等の共存ガスとともに環境中に放出される可能性があるためである。この事故事象の安全評価に資するため、気体状RuO$$_{4}$$(RuO$$_{4}$$(g))の分解・化学形変化挙動を、温度や共存ガスの組成をパラメータとした様々な条件下で実験的に評価した。結果として、RuO$$_{4}$$(g)は気相条件によって多様な挙動を示した。乾燥空気や水蒸気を用いた実験ではRuO$$_{4}$$(g)の分解が観察された。一方、HNO$$_{3}$$を含む混合ガスを用いた実験では、RuO$$_{4}$$(g)の分解はほとんど観測されず、化学形を保持した。

Emphasis has been placed on the behavior of ruthenium (Ru) in the evaporation to dryness accident due to the loss of cooling functions (EDLCF) of high-level liquid waste in fuel reprocessing plants. It is because Ru would form volatile compounds such as ruthenium tetroxide (RuO$$_{4}$$) and could be released into the environment with other coexisting gasses such as nitric acid (HNO$$_{3}$$), water (H$$_{2}$$O). To contribute to the safety evaluation of this accident, we experimentally evaluated the decomposition and chemical change behavior of the gaseous RuO$$_{4}$$ (RuO$$_{4}$$(g)) under the various atmospheric conditions: temperature and composition of coexisting gasses. As a result, the behavior of the RuO$$_{4}$$(g) was diverse depending on the atmospheric conditions. In the experiments with the dry air or H$$_{2}$$O vapor, decomposition of RuO$$_{4}$$(g) was observed. In the experiment with the mixed gas which containing HNO$$_{3}$$, almost no decomposition of the RuO$$_{4}$$(g) was observed, and chemical form of the RuO$$_{4}$$(g) was retained.
