Title: REMOVAL OF SILICA FROM SOLUTIONS OF NUCLEAR FUELS

Abstract

By the addition of gelatin, small amounts of silica present in nitric acid solutions of metals can be flocculated for ready removal by filtration or centrifugation. In the processing of nuclear reactor fuels by solvent extraction, the prior removal of silica by gelatin reduces emulsification and solids accumulation without complicating product recovery, fission product removal, or waste disposal.
