The adsorption of cesium (Cs) on biotite and dissolution of Cs from Cs-bearing biotite using a siderophore were investigated aiming to contribute to the elucidation of radiocesium migration mechanisms in the soil environment. Cs was adsorbed on a hardly weathered biotite powder sample. A siderophore was extracted and purified from the bacterial culture medium, and the purified siderophore was used in five consecutive dissolution experiments of the biotite samples. The major components of the biotite (Al, Fe, and Mg) were dissolved almost stoichiometrically, strongly suggesting that the siderophore selectively dissolves the broken edges of the biotite. The Cs adsorbed on the broken edges was dissolved rapidly as the siderophore dissolved the broken edges, and then, the Cs adsorbed on the outer planar surface of the biotite particles was slowly dissolved.

KURNS Progress Report 2018, P. 240, 2019/08
This report is the progress report on cooperation research with KURNS (Institute for Integrated Radiation and Nuclear Science, Kyoto University). The purpose of this cooperation research is to provide the insights for assessment of doses from internal exposures. To achieve this aim, we experimentally evaluated the absorption fraction in gastrointestinal system of Cs-137 in wild boar contaminated by the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident.

Doses received by the public are necessary information in management of radiation exposures in areas contaminated by the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (1F) accident. Direct ingestion of contaminated soil is one of the exposure pathways which is a concern for the people living in the areas in terms of children's exposure. Therefore in order to manage efficiently the middle and the long term exposures with a sense of safety of the people, we have to clarify the contribution of this pathway to the doses received by those. However, a fractional absorption of radioactive cesium in gastrointestinal system has not been evaluated yet. We evaluated this factor based on the results of a physiologically based extraction test and an extraction test with hydrochloric acid, which is adopted in Japanese national law to evaluate a fractional absorption of heavy metals in gastrointestinal system. In addition, we assessed the doses to the public from this pathway after the 1F accident.

We experimentally evaluated the absorption fraction in gastrointestinal system of Cs-137 in wild boar meat contaminated by the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident. Wild boar was hunted in difficult-to-return zone in December 2017. For three parts of the meat (Loin, Brisket, Round), extraction tests were performed based on in-vitro digestion method by Minekus et al. (2014). From this test, the extraction rate in small intestinal was evaluated as 89%3%.
