Title: Migration studies of radionuclides at the WIPP site. [Effects of organics on mobility of Gd, Eu, Ce]

Abstract

A study was made of the effects on radionuclide migration from the solid TRU waste of inorganic and organic ligands in brine media. Typical organic waste meterials were exposed to synthetic brine at 70/sup 0/ for up to 1 year. Pure brine and brine/organic waste extracts were used to determine actinide and lathanide (/sup 153/Gd, /sup 144/Ce, /sup 152/Eu, /sup 243/Am) distribution coefficients K/sub d/ between geological media and the brine. Results show that brine containing extract from plywood, etc. reduces considerably the K/sub d/. (DLC)
