Title: Analysis of Radiolytically Generated Gases in Mini-AMORE Experiment

Abstract

Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne) is assisting one of the potential domestic Mo-99 producers, SHINE Medical Technologies, as part of the National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA) Office of Material, Management, and Minimization (M 3) program in the development of a domestic Mo-99 production pathway that does not use highly enriched uranium (HEU). The process proposed by SHINE would produce Mo-99 by neutron-induced fission of a low enriched uranium (LEU) solution as uranyl sulfate in a subcritical assembly. As part of the development effort, Argonne is undertaking the AMORE (Argonne Molybdenum Research Experiment) project, which is essentially a pilot facility for all phases of Mo-99 production, recovery, and purification. Mini-AMORE is a part of the AMORE experiment where 2 mL samples of uranyl sulfate solution are inserted in the dry well of the AMORE target solution vessel.
