Analytical chemistry in nuclear technology

  • H. J. Ache
Iupac Congress Lectures

Summary

The objectives of analytical chemistry in nuclear technology are discussed. The analytical techniques and methods commonly used in the various phases of the nuclear fuel cycle, mining and fuel fabrication, reprocessing and nuclear waste management are described and their advantages and disadvantages are demonstrated. The question of applying in-line analytical instruments in this area is addressed and some techniques which show a proven potential for such an employment are defined.
