The use of molten lead in metal and chemical industry is well know. It’s further applications in nuclear and non-nuclear fields are under consideration. An INTOR (International Tokamak Reactor) study (1) proposes molten lead alloys with lithium and lithium compounds as breeding material for fusion reactors due to their excellent nuclear physical properties. Lead-Bismuth alloys and other metals are being considered as target materials for a spallation neutron source (2).
