A continuous counter-current experiment using TDdDGA was performed using mixer-settler extractors installed in a hot cell. Nitric acid containing minor actinides (MAs: Am and Cm), rare earths (REs: Y, La, Nd, and Eu), and other fission products (Sr, Cs, Zr, Mo, Ru, Rh, and Pd) was fed to the extractor. TDdDGA effectively extracted MAs and REs from the feed, while other fission products were barely extracted. The extracted MAs and REs were back-extracted by bringing them in contact with 0.02 mol/dm$$^{3}$$ nitric acid, and they were collected as the MA-RE fraction. The proportions of MA and RE in the MA-RE fraction were $$>$$ 98% and $$>$$ 86%, respectively. These results demonstrated the applicability of TDdDGA as an extractant for MAs and REs.

The neutron instruments suite, installed at the spallation neutron source of the Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC), is reviewed. MLF has 23 neutron beam ports and 21 instruments are in operation for user programs or are under commissioning. A unique and challenging instrumental suite in MLF has been realized via combination of a high-performance neutron source, optimized for neutron scattering, and unique instruments using cutting-edge technologies. All instruments are/will serve in world-leading investigations in a broad range of fields, from fundamental physics to industrial applications. In this review, overviews, characteristic features, and typical applications of the individual instruments are mentioned.

An impeccable, high-performance new reagent called alkyl diamide amine (ADAAM) was examined from the viewpoint of mutual separation of Am(III) and Eu(III). ADAAM has three donor atoms, one soft N-donor atom and two hard O-donor atoms, in the central frame. The combination of soft and hard atoms affords a tridentate donor set of atoms that ensures remarkable extractability and selectivity of Am(III) and Eu(III) in highly acidic media.

Future synchrotron light sources based on the energy-recovery linacs (ERLs) are expected to be capable of producing super-brilliant and/or ultra-short pulses of synchrotron radiation. Our Japanese collaboration team is making efforts for realizing an ERL-based hard X-ray source. We report recent progress in our R&D efforts.

no journal, , 

JAEA continues to carry out the development of the ADS(Double-strata). Mutual separation of MA and Ln is important for the development of the partitioning process. The separation is particularly difficult, because they have the analogous chemical behavior. New reagent was synthesized and examined. The results of separation factors (SF) of Am against Eu are more than 25. The reagent is very stable chemically, high extraction capacity, fully miscible with hydrocarbon diluents, fast chemical kinetics, and following the CHON-principle.

JAEA continues to carry out the development of the ADS (Double-strata). Mutual separation of MA and Ln is important for the development of the partitioning process. TDdDGA was performed using a mixer-settler equipment for the development of the separation process for MA. TDdDGA has a high extraction capacity. TDdDGA consists of C, H, O and N atoms (the CHON-principle). In this experiment, the feed solution as simulated HLLW contained fourteen elements. The results of the counter-current test showed that Am was extracted and was recovered in a high yield.

JAEA continues to carry out the development of the ADS(Double-strata). Mutual separation of Am(III) and Cm(III) is important for the development of the partitioning process. The separation is particularly difficult, because they have the analogous chemical behavior. Alkyl diamide amine (ADAAM), a new high-performance reagent with a simple structure, was examined for the mutual separation of Am(III) and Cu(III). The combination of ADAAM and N,N,N',N'-tetraethyldiglycolamide (TEDGA) as a masking agent shows selectivity for Am(III) over Cm(III) in highly acidic media with separation factors up to 41.

Hexaalkyl-nitrilotriacetamide (NTAamide) was evaluated for the separation of MA(III) and RE(III). NTAamide is a multidentate ligand comprising one soft N-donor atom and three hard O-donor atoms as part of its central frame. This tetradentate set of donor atoms provide selective binding for Am(III) and Nd(III) and yield separation factors of up to 3.7. A continuous liquid liquid extraction and stripping process were performed using Hexaoctyl-NTAamide (HONTA) in n-dodecane as the extractant in a multistage countercurrent mixer-settler extractor. Separation of MA(III) and RE(III) in high yield was demonstrated.

Hexaalkyl-nitrilotriacetamide (NTAamide) was evaluated for the separation of MA(III) and RE(III). NTAamide is a tetradentate ligand with one soft central N-donor atom and three hard carbonyl O-donor atoms in its skeleton. NTAamide was tested for the removal of MA(III) and RE(III) from HNO$$_{3}$$ into n-dodecane. MA(III) and RE(III) separation was demonstrated with a high yield through the extraction process using NTAamide. This study shows that NTAamide is a highly practical, high-performance extractant for partitioning MA(III) from RE(III).

PUREX process was established for industrial scale reprocessing plant. TRUEX and the 4 group separation were developed for partitioning of minor actinides from HLW, and demonstrated using genuine HLW. Although the extractants for the processes have excellent performance, the molecules contain phosphorus which could be cause for the secondary waste from the solvent extraction processes. To minimize the radioactive waste, we have conducted research and development of the new reprocessing and MA separation processes using innovative extractants in accord with CHON principle. The extractants for reprocessing process are monoamides as alternative extractants for TBP. For An(III)+RE recovery process, we developed TDdDGA. HONTA and ADAAM were developed for An(III)/RE separation process and Am/Cm separation process respectively. The separation performances of the flowsheets were evaluated by continuous extraction tests using simulated and genuine spent fuel and high level liquid waste.

The authors have developed a new extractant for the separation of minor actinide (MA) from high-level liquid waste (HLLW). Tetra-2-ethylhexyldiglycolamide (TEHDGA) has four branched alkyl chains and has high solubility in diluents. Furthermore, TEHDGA has high selectivity of MA from fission products, high extraction capacity, fast extraction kinetics, fast phase separation, and low cost. TEHDGA is a highly practical extractant for partitioning MA from HLLW.

PUREX process was established for industrial scale reprocessing plant. TRUEX and the 4 group separation were developed for partitioning of minor actinides from high level liquid waste from reprocessing process, and demonstrated by the continuous extraction test using genuine high level liquid waste. Although the extractants for reprocessing and MA separation processes, such as tri-n-butyl phosphate (TBP), n-octyl(phenyl)-N, N-diisobutylcarbamoylmethylphosphine oxide (CMPO) and diisodecylphosphoric acid (DIDPA), have excellent performance for recovery of U, Pu or MA, the molecules contain phosphorus which could be cause for the secondary waste from the solvent extraction processes. To minimize the radioactive waste from nuclear fuel cycle, we have conducted research and development of the new reprocessing and MA separation processes using innovative extractants in accord with CHON principle.
