The refining of platinum group metals is based mainly on solvent extraction methods, whereas Ru is selectively recovered by distillation as RuO$$_4$$. Replacement of distillation byextraction is expected to simplify the purification process. To develop an effective extraction system for Ru, we analyzed the Ru species in HCl with UV-Vis and EXAFS spectroscopies, and we examined the properties of Ru extracted with N-2-ethylhexyl-bis(N-di-2-ethylhexyl-ethylamide) amine (EHBAA). EXAFS and UV-Vis spectra of Ru in HCl solutions revealed that the predominant Ru species in 0.5-10 M HCl solutions changed from [RuCl$$_4$$(H$$_2$$O)$$_2$$]$$^-$$ to [RuCl$$_6$$]$$^3$$$$^-$$ with the HCl concentration. The extraction percentages of Ru in the EHBAA system increased with increasing HCl concentration, reached 80% at [HCl] = 5 M, and decreased athigher HCl concentrations. EXAFS analysis of the extracted complex indicated that the Ru$$^3$$$$^+$$ had 5 Cl$$^-$$ and 1 H$$_2$$O in its inner coordination sphere. The similarity of the dependence on HCl concentrations of the extraction in the EHBAA system and the distribution profile of [RuCl$$_5$$(H$$_2$$O)]$$^2$$$$^-$$ on [RuCl$$_n$$(H$$_2$$O)$$_6$$$$_-$$$$_n$$]$$^3$$$$^-$$$$^n$$ suggested that the EHBAA extracted the pentachlorido species.

 Times Cited Count:2 Percentile:12.81(Chemistry, Multidisciplinary)

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.

"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.

Power Reactor and Nuclear Fuel Development Corporation (PNC) has been developping techniques for evaluation of groundwater flow in the granitic rock as crystalline rock. In a link of this purpose, PNC introduced the borehole radar system (RAMAC) which was developped in Stripa Project by OECD/Nuclear Energy Agency because it is essential to investigate the spatial extent and dimensions of fracture zones. This report describes the results of crosshole measurements which were performed with RAMAC system at the Kamaishi In-situ Experiment Site in the northern part of Honsyu Island, Japan. Crosshole measurements were performed with four boreholes which were drilled at G.L. -260 meters. The tomographic inversion was made using crosshole data and figures of slowness distribution were interpreted. Integrated analysis on the tomogurams was carried out in the combination of the observation of the fracture zones with flowing groundwater. The results are summarized as follows; (1)Spatial extent of some low velocity zones and high velocity zones of electromagnetic waves were delineated. (2)Most of the seeping points identified by borehole TV lies in the low velocity zones. (3)The low velocity zones exactly correspond to the fracture-concentrated zones or fracture zones with flowing groundwater recognized on the walls of the gallery, which was excavated after drilling of the boreholes. (4)This may indicate that low velocity zones obtained by the borehole radar measurements corresponds with fracture-concentrated zones or fracture zones with groundwater in the deep underground.

Extraction separation of Am(III) and Eu(III) was examined by the thermal-swing extraction technique using a thermosensitive gel, NIPA (poly-N-isopropylacrylamide) copolymerized with an encapsulating ligand, TPEN derivative called TPPEN (N,N,N',N'-tetrakis(4-propenyloxy-2-pyridylmethyl)ethylenediamine). The separation of Am(III) from Eu(III) was observed in the swollen state of gel (5$$^{circ}$$C) and the separation factor of Am(III) was evaluated as about 18 at pH5.2. More than 90% of Am(III) extracted into the gel was released by the volume phase transition of gel from the swollen state (5$$^{circ}$$C) to the shrunken one (40$$^{circ}$$C). The radiation effect of gel on the extraction of Am and Eu was tested by the irradiation of $$gamma$$-ray (10 kGy) and the long-term adsorption of $$alpha$$-emitter ($$^{244}$$Cm). The TPPEN-NIPA gel sustained no damage by these radiation tests. These results suggest that the thermal-swing extraction technique is applicable to the MA partitioning process indispensable for the establishment of P&T technology.

no journal, , 

N,N,N',N'-tetrakis(2-pyridylmethyl)ethylenediamine (TPEN) is one of the podand-type ligands with six nitrogen-donors and recognize the slight difference in the softness between Am(III) and Eu(III). We have tried to synthesize a novel extraction chromatographic agent, which exploit such feature of TPEN. The use of the polymer gel as a support of the extractant can be expect to suppress the elution of the extractant and keep the flexibility of extractant. N,N,N',N'-tetrakis-(4-propenyloxy-2-pyridylmethyl)ethylenediamine (TPPEN) which is TPEN analog introducing polymerizable group to pyridine ring was used as a cross-linker of N-isopropylacrylamide (NIPA). Furthermore, the TPPEN-NIPA gel on highly porous silica was prepared to improve the mechanical strength of the gel. These extraction chromatographic agents have been tested for the separation of Am(III) and Eu(III). Characterization and extraction performance of the extraction chromatographic agents will be described.

Separation of minor actinides (MAs) from lanthanides in high-level radioactive waste (HLW) becomes important in nuclear power generation. Although TPEN is a possible candidate for the practical separating agent for MAs from HLW, there still remains difficulties in high water solubility and easy protonation characteristics. The practical MA separation is conducted from a mixture of MAs and Ln(III) in a highly acidic aqueous solution, thereby a hydrophobic and acid tolerant chelating agent needs to be developed. We herein report efficient syntheses of TPEN derivatives bearing various hydrophobic side-chains, which are alkyloxy and fluorinated alkoxy groups, and solvent extraction of Am(III) from Eu(III) in nitric acid aqueous solution. Synthesized TPEN derivatives were hydrophobic and showed higher performance than unsubstituted TPEN for Am separation from Eu in extraction with water/organic solvents at low pH region.
