To investigate the effective separation of actinides (Ans) from lanthanides (Lns), single-stage batch extraction experiments were performed with a novel extractant, tetradodecyl-1,10-phenanthroline-2,9-diamide (TDdPTDA) with various diluents such as 3-nitrobenzotrifluoride (F-3), nitrobenzene, and ${it n}$-dodecane for Am, Cm, and Lns. The extraction kinetics with TDdPTDA was rapid enough to perform the actual extraction flow sheet. The slopes of the distribution ratio versus TDdPTDA concentration and the distribution ratio versus nitric acid concentration were similar for F-3 and nitrobenzene systems but different from ${it n}$-dodecane system. These differences were attributed to the characteristics of the diluents. This study reveals high distribution ratios of Am (${it D}$ $$_{Am}$$) and Cm (${it D}$ $$_{Cm}$$) for TDdPTDA, with the high separation factors (${it SF}$s) of Am from Lns enough for their separation.

Separation of platinum group metals (PGMs) from high-level liquid waste generated from the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuels is important to produce good quality vitrified glass for final disposal. A new sorbent, Aluminum hexacyanoferrate (AlHCF), was synthesized and the general sorption behavior of PGMs from concentrated nitric acid was examined. Nitric acid caused substantial elution of AlHCF but the sorption of Pd stabilized the structure. Consequently, Rh was sorbed in the presence of Pd, whereas single Rh sorption caused complete dissolution of AlHCF. Relation between sorbed mount of Pd vs eluted Al and Fe revealed that the elution ratio of Al and Fe was not the same as molar ratio of synthesized AlHCF, indicating the re-sorption of Fe resulted in formation of new structure. The sorption mechanism of PGMs by this new sorbent, AlHCF, not only the simple ion exchange, but also oxidation reduction reaction as well as kinetics play important rule. Understanding the general sorption and dissolution behavior will help improve the sorption performance of PGMs by AlHCF.

A series of separation experiments was performed to study the recovery process for minor actinides (MAs) from the actual spent fuel by using an extraction chromatographic technique. TPPEN gel was used as a new extraction chromatographic agent. Mixed oxide fuel was used as a reference spent fuel to demonstrate the recovery of the MAs. The MOX fuel, including 29.9 wt% plutonium (Pu), was irradiated up to 119 GWd/MTM, and the fuel was then prepared for the extraction experiment. A Mixed solution of MAs and lanthanides (Lns) was prepared. The TPPEN gel was immersed in a 0.01 M NaNO$$_{3}$$ solution, and the pH was adjusted to 4.0. Next, an extraction column was prepared using the TPPEN gel, and the mixed solution of MAs and Lns was passed through the column. The Lns were detected in the eluent after washing with 0.01 M NaNO$$_{3}$$ (pH 4.0). For detecting the MAs, the pH of the eluent was changed to 2.0.

${it N,N,N',N'}$-(tetrakis-2-pyridylmethyl)ethylenediamine (TPEN) derivatives bearing a polymerizable double bond in the substituent structure of the pyridine ring are synthesized and subjected to copolymerization with ${it N}$-isopropylacrylamide in the presence of AIBN. The obtained poly(TPEN-NIPA) gels show thermo-responsive swelling/shrinking behaviors and are employed for the extraction of cadmium(II) ion from the aqueous solution to examine the relationship of the gel characteristics and the extraction performance. The polymer gels composed of the TPEN derivative bearing C3, C4, C10 and branched C3 spacer chains are synthesized and temperature-dependent extraction behavior of cadmium ion is compared. These gels extract Cd(II) ion efficiently from the aqueous solution in the swelling state at 5$$^{circ}$$C, while little extraction is observed at 45$$^{circ}$$C with shrinking. It is found that poly(TPEN-NIPA) gel of branched C3 spacer (C3b) shows the excellent thermoresponsive extraction performance.

We are developing a new MA/Ln separation process with TPEN and its derivatives for P&T technology. TPEN is a hexadentate soft-donor ligand that has six soft-donor sites as a kind of podand type molecule and can encapsulate a metal ion. TPEN has good selectivity of Am(III) from Ln(III) and has potential to establish partitioning of MA. From the viewpoint of practical application, the hydrophobicity of TPEN must be improved. Because the dissolution of a slight amount of TPEN (about 10$$^{-4}$$ mol/l) to water will restrict decontamination of Ln in extraction process. In this study, the hydrophobicity of TPEN was improved by introducing alkyl groups and the effect of the introduction of alkyl groups on the separation of Am(III) and Eu(III) was examined. One of them, N,N,N',N'-tetrakis((5-butoxypyridin-2-yl)-methyl)ethylenediamine, TBPEN, showed good selectivity and the maximum separation factor, SF$$_{Am/Eu}$$, was 91 at pH 3.02. The hydrophobicity of TBPEN is checked by the distribution data between water and chloroform, and improved successfully. The approach for development of hydrophobic derivatives of TPEN was effective.

N,N,N',N'-(tetrakis-2-pyridylmethyl)ethylenediamine (TPEN) derivatives bearing the different number (1-4) of a double bond moiety on the pyridine ring are synthesized and subjected to copolymerization with N-isopropylacrylamide in the presence of AIBN. The obtained poly(TPEN-NIPA)gels show thermo-responsive swelling/shrinking behaviors and are employed for the extraction of cadmium(II) ion from the aqueous solution to examine the relationship of the gel characteristics and the extraction performance. The polymer gels composed of the TPEN derivative bearing three or four double bonds exhibit temperature-dependent change of swelling and shrinking in water. These gels extract CdII ion efficiently from the aqueous solution in the swelling state at 5$$^{circ}$$C, while little extraction was observed at 45$$^{circ}$$C with shrinking.

We are developing a new MA/Ln separation process with derivatives of TPEN (N,N,N',N'-tetrakis(2-pyridylmethyl)ethylenediamine) for P&T technology. TPEN has good selectivity of Am(III) from Ln(III). However, TPEN is soluble slightly (about 10$$^{-4}$$ mol/l) to water. In this study, the hydrophobicity of TPEN is improved by introducing alkyl groups and the selectivity of Am(III) and Eu(III) is examined. We succeeded to synthesize several new hydrophobic derivative of TPEN. One of the ligands, TDdPEN (N,N,N',N'-tetrakis((5-dodecyloxypyridin-2-yl)-methyl)ethylenediamine) showed high selectivity. The maximum separation factor, SF$$_{Am/Eu}$$, was over 800. Hydrophobic derivatives of TPEN that have potential of application to the MA/Ln separation process was synthesized successfully.

"Geoscientific research" at the Tono Area is developing site investigation, characterization and assessment techniques for understanding of geological environment. Their important goal is to establish a methodology for analyzing uncertainties in a heterogeneous geological environment and to develop investigation techniques for efficiently reducing the uncertainties. In Fiscal Year 17, in addition to information from the MIZ-1 borehole investigation, present knowledge has been compiled. The proposed technique has been improved through conceptual geological modeling and groundwater analyses at the Tono Area. Design options for handling geological uncertainties based on the characterization of the geological environment have also been tested. The results of this study can be summarized as follows: (1) It was shown that the fracture group with NW strike has high correlation with maximum measured transmissivity. This was maybe caused by the effect of regional in situ stress. (2) Through conceptual geological modelling and groundwater analysis, a procedure for modelling of the geological environment with heterogeneous characteristics was proposed. (3) From the viewpoint of improving the design of an underground facility, the existence of uncertainties of the geological environment with heterogeneous characteristics requests multiple options. A design option should be adapted to the geological environment with heterogeneous characteristics.

"Geoscientific research" at the Tono Area is developing site investigation, characterization and assessment techniques for understanding of geological environment. Their important goals are to establish a methodology for analyzing uncertainties in heterogeneous geological environment and to develop investigation techniques for efficiently reducing the uncertainties. The current study proposes a new approach where all the possible options in the models and data-sets, which cannot be excluded in the light of the evidences available, are identified. This approach enables uncertainties associated with the understanding at a given stage of the site characterization to be made explicitly using an uncertainty analysis technique based on Fuzzy geostatistics. This approach supports the design of the following investigation stage and reduces the uncertainties efficiently. In FY H16 the technique has been tested through geological modelling and groundwater analyses with Tono Area case based on current knowledge, to demonstrate its applicability and to compile the knowledge / information required to describe the H17 report. This report can be summarized as follows: (1) The knowledge / information required to describe the heterogeneous characteristics was compiled and connected to uncertainties associated with the characterization of a geological environment using a synthesis diagram. (2) Methodologies for assignment and screening of parameters were developed by using Evidential Support Logic (ESL). (3) Applicability of the techniques could be confirmed with Tono Area case. (4) This report proposed a new methodology that integrates the technique into JAEA ordinary technique to good advantage in the geoscientific research project.
