Title: METHOD FOR OBTAINING PLUTONIUM METAL FROM ITS TRICHLORIDE

Abstract

A method was developed for obtaining plutonium metal by direct reduction of plutonium chloride, without the use of a booster, using calcium and lanthamum as a reductant, the said reduction being carried out at temperature in the range of 700 to 850 deg C and at about atmospheric pressure. (AEC)
