Title: LABORATORY INVESTIGATIONS IN SUPPORT OF FLUID-BED FLUORIDE VOLATILITY PROCESSES. PART II. THE PROPERTIES OF PLUTONIUM HEXAFLUORIDE

Abstract

All of the properties of plutonium hexfluoride reported up to May 1983 are summarized, andd pentinent data are presented in detail. Included are the preparation of plutonium hexafluoride, physical properties, absorption spectra, chemical reactions, decomposition of plutonium hexafluoride by radiation and heat, the corrosion of materials of construction by plutonium hexafluoride, and a summary of the biological and radiological hazards from plutonium hexafluoride. An expanded vapor pressure table is appended. 122 references are included. (auth)
