Title: Processing High Level Waste: Spectroscopic Characterization of Redox Reactions in Supercritical Water

Abstract

We are engaged in a collaborative research effort with Los Alamos staff scientists Steven Buelow and Jeanne Robinson, staff members in group CST-6. The work proposed by these LANL staff scientists is directed towards the destruction of complexants and oxidation of chromium and technetium by hydrothermal processing in near critical or supercritical aqueous solutions. Our own work has been focused on a careful kinetic study of oxidation reactions of hydrogen peroxide with chromium hydroxide. This reaction occurs readily at ambient temperatures.
