Title: Radiolytic Effects on Fluoride Impurities in a U{sub 3}O{sub 8} Matrix

Abstract

The safe handling and storage of radioactive materials require an understanding of the effects of radiolysis on those materials. Radiolysis may result in the production of gases (e.g., corrosives) or pressures that are deleterious to storage containers. A study has been performed to address these concerns as they relate to the radiolysis of residual fluoride compounds in uranium oxides.
