Preparation of plutonium fluoride to obtain metal of high purity; Preparation de fluorures de plutonium pour l'obtention de metal de haute purete

Abstract

In the process of treating irradiated uranium, plutonium can be separated from the majority of the fission products and from the uranium by TBP extraction cycles. The high purity necessary for metallurgical and nuclear physics experiments led us to consider more elaborate purification processes, and a specially adapted method of fluoride preparation. The first part of the paper describes purification cycles of plutonium in solution on ion exchange resins, and the results are given. The second part contains the description and results of the fluoride preparation method. (author) [French] Dans le processus du traitement de l'uranium irradie, les cycles d'extraction au TBP permettent la separation du plutonium de la majorite des produits de fission et de l'uranium. La haute purete exigee pour les experiences de metallurgie et de physique nucleaire nous a conduit a envisager des purifications plus poussee et un mode de confection des fluorures specialement adapte. La premiere partie de l'expose decrit et donne les resultats de cycles de purification du plutonium en solution sur des resines echangeuses d'ions. La seconde partie decrit et donne les resultats du mode de confection des fluorures. (auteur)
