Title: METHOD OF SEPARATION OF PLUTONIUM FROM CARRIER PRECIPITATES

Abstract

The recovery of plutonium from fluoride carrier precipitates is described. The precipitate is dissolved in zirconyl nitrate, ferric nitrate, aluminum nitrate, or a mixture of these complexing agents, and the plutonium is then extracted from the aqueous solution formed with a water-immiscible organic solvent.
