原子力施設周辺では、環境試料中の放射化学分析(環境モニタリング)が行われる。環境試料中の$$alpha$$, $$beta$$核種の前処理は、従来、酸を用いて有機物を分解し、$$^{90}$$Sr, U, Pu等の対象核種を抽出する方法で行われている。そこで、酸の代わりに超臨界水を用いた環境に優しい新しい前処理法を開発した。本研究では、茨城県の土壌(黒ボク土)を用いて水熱前処理を行い、放射性Sr及びUの前処理を行った。その結果、Sr及びUの回収率はそれぞれ70%及び40%であった。また得られた回収率は、水の密度との相関関係にあることが分かった。開発した方法により、放射化学分析の前処理法における環境負荷を低減することができる。

The radioactivities in the environmental samples are analyzed to monitor the nuclear power facilities. The pretreatment of radioactive nuclides of alpha and beta emitters in the environmental samples is performed with acid to decompose organic matter and extract object nuclide such as $$^{90}$$Sr, U and Pu. However, the pretreatment methods are time-consuming and used many concentrated acid solutions that are unsafe and hazardous. Therefore, we develop to the new pretreatment method using supercritical water instead of acid. Hydrothermal pretreatment of soils (Andosols) from Ibaraki prefecture (Japan) was used to improve methods for monitoring radioactive Sr and U. Calcined samples were pretreated with subcritical or supercritical water (SCW) followed by extraction with 0.5 M HNO$$_{3}$$ solutions. With SCW pretreatment, recoveries of Sr and U were 70% and 40%, respectively. Experimental recoveries obtained can be described by a linear relationship in water density. The proposed method is robust and can lower environmental burden of routine analytical protocols.
