Title: ADSORPTION-BISMUTH PHOSPHATE METHOD FOR SEPARATING PLUTONIUM

Abstract

A process is given for separating plutonium from uranium and fission products. Plutonium and uranium are adsorbed by a cation exchange resin, plutonium is eluted from the adsorbent, and then, after oxidation to the hexavalent state, the plutonium is contacted with a bismuth phosphate carrier precipitate.
