The influence of iodine on radiolysis of Purex-solvent

  • M. Nowak

The effect of stable iodine on the radiolysis of the TBP-dodecane solvent was examined at two nitric acid concentrations. The results obtained indicate that presaturation of the solvent with stable iodine causes marked increase in the yields of organic nitrites and hydroxy-compounds and decrease of the yield of HDBP, carbonyl and nitro-compounds. The mechanisms of observed effects are discussed.
