Title: Effects of Water Radiolysis in Water Cooled Reactors, NERI Proposal No.99-0010

Abstract

OAK B188 Effects of Water Radiolysis in Water Cooled Reactors, NERI Proposal No.99-0010. The aim of this project is to develop an experiment-and-theory based model for the radiolysis of nonstandard aqueous systems like those that will be encountered in the Advance Light Water reactor. Three aspects of the radiation chemistry of aqueous systems at elevated temperatures are considered in the project: the radiation-induced reaction within the primary track and with additives, the homogeneous production of H{sub 2}O{sub 2} at high radiation doses, and the heterogeneous reaction of the radiation-induced species escaping the track. The goals outlined for Phase 1 of the program were: the compilation of information on the radiation chemistry of water at elevated temperatures, the simulation of existing experimental data on the escape yields of e{sub aq}{sup -}, OH, H{sub 2} and H{sub 2}O{sub 2} in {gamma} radiolysis at elevated temperatures, the measurement of low LET and high LET production of H{sub 2}O{sub 2} at room temperature, the compilation of information on the radiation chemistry of water-(metal) oxide interfaces, and the synthesis and characterization the heterogeneous water-oxide systems of interest.
