Title: EVALUATION OF HYDROCARBON DILUENTS FOR THE PUREX PROCESS

Abstract

Forty-nine hydrocarbon products were evaluated in the laboratory in a search for a highly stable diluent for the organic extractant used in a radiochemical separations plant. The formation of zirconium ligands during chemical and radiolytic degradation increased with boiling point for isoparaffinic producte but was approximately constant for n-parafiins. Of those materials that met the local flash point specification, the n-parafiins were superior. (auth)
