Title: PROCESS OF TREATING OR FORMING AN INSOLUBLE PLUTONIUM PRECIPITATE IN THE PRESENCE OF AN ORGANIC ACTIVE AGENT

Abstract

Carrier precipitation processes for the separation of plutonium from fission products are described. In a process in which an insoluble precipitate is formed in a solution containing plutonium and fission products under conditions whereby plutonium is carried by the precipitate, and the precipitate is then separated from the remaining solution, an organic surface active agent is added to the mixture of precipitate and solution prior to separation of the precipitate from the supernatant solution, thereby improving the degree of separation of the precipitate from the solution.
