Title: METHOD OF PREPARING PuF$sub 4$

Abstract

A method is presented for the preparation of plutonium tetrafluoride from plutonium trifluoride. This is accomplished by contacting the trifluoride with hydrogen fluoride in the presence of oxygen. The preferred temperature for the reaction is in the neighborhood of 600 deg C and the preferred reactant mixture consists of HF mixed with from 5 to 20 volume% of O/sub 2/.
