Title: ELECTROLYTIC PREPARATION OF UF$sub 4$

Abstract

A method is presented for converting hexavalent aranium to uranium tetrafluoride. The method consists of electrolyzing a solution of uranyl fluoride in hydrofluoric acld at about 90 icient laborato C. The uranyl ions are reduced at the cathode and a hydrated uranium tetrafluoride precipitates. The precipitate is separated and subsequently dehydrated to UF/sub 4/.
