Title: THE DETERMINATION OF FLUORIDE IN PLUTONIUM FLUORIDES

Abstract

The Willard-Winter distillation was adapted to the determination of fluoride in plutonium fiuorides. Fluoride was distilled from samples in 12M sulfuric acid, and the distillate was then titrated to a visual end point with a standard solution of thorium nitrate. In the analysis of plutonium trifluoride the average recovery of fluoride was 98.6% of theoretical, and the standard deviation of the results was 1.3 relative%. (auth)
