Abstract

Some reactor design considerations of the use of fission recoil fragment energy for the production of chemicals of industrial importance have been discussed previously in a paper given at the Second United Nations International Conference on the Peaceful Uses of Atomic Energy [A/Conf. 15/P.76]. The present paper summarizes more recent progress made on this topic at AERE, Harwell. The range-energy relationship for fission fragments is discussed in the context of the choice of fuel system for a chemical production reactor, and the experimental observation of a variation of chemical effect along the length of a fission fragment track is described for the irradiation of nitrogen-oxygen mixtures. Recent results are given on the effect of fission fragments on carbon monoxide-hydrogen gas mixtures and on water vapour. No system investigated to date shows any outstanding promise for large-scale chemical production.

(author) [French] En ce qui concerne la construction de reacteurs, certaines considerations relatives a l'emploi de l'energie des fragments de fission de recul pour la production de certaines substances chimiques d'importance industrielle ont deja ete examinees dans un memoire soumis a la deuxieme Conference internationale sur l'utilisation de l'energie atomique a des fins pacifiques [A/Conf. 15/PP. 76]. Le present memoire donne un apercu des progres accomplis depuis lors dans ce domaine par 1'Atomic Energy Research Establishment a Harwell. Les auteurs etudient la relation entre le parcours et l'energie pour des fragments de fission a propos du choix du combustible pour un reacteur destine a la production de substances chimiques; ils decrivent aussi une variation d'effet chimique observee le long de la trajectoire d'un fragment de fission pendant l'irradiation de melanges azote-oxygene. Les auteurs fournissent les resultats de recherches recentes relatives a l'effet des fragments de fission sur des melanges oxyde de carbone-hydrogen e et sur la vapeur d'eau. Aucun des systemes etudies jusqu'a present ne parait offrir de possibilites interessantes pour la grande industrie chimique. (author) [Spanish] En una memoria presentada en la segunda Conferencia Internacional sobre la Utilizacion de la Energia Atomica con Fines Pacificos [A/Conf. 15/P. 76] se expusieron algunas consideraciones , atendiendo al diseno de los reactores, sobre la utilizacion de la energia de retroceso de los fragmentos de fision para la produccion de ciertos compuestos quimicos de importancia industrial. La presente memoria pasa revista a los progresos realizados desde entonces en esta materia por el Atomic Energy Research Establishment de Harwell. Los autores examinan la relacion entre el alcance y la energia para los fragmentos de fision al discutirse la eleccion del combustible para un reactor destinado a la produccion de compuestos quimicos y describen la variacion de efecto quimico observada a lo largo de la trayectoria de los fragmentos de fision en la irradiacion de mezclas de nitrogeno y oxigeno. Analizan tambien los resultados de investigaciones recientes acerca de los efectos de fragmentos de fision sobre mezclas de monoxido de carbono e hidrogeno y sobre el vapor de agua. Al parecer, ninguno de los sistemas estudiados hasta la fecha ofrece perspectivas particularmente interesantes para la industria quimica pesada.

V nastoyashchem doklade rezyumiruyutsya bolee nedavnie rezul'taty, dostignutye v ehtoj oblasti Nauchno-issledo-vatel'skim institutom po atomnoj ehnergii v KHaruehlle.

Privodyatsya novejshie rezul'taty otnositel'no vozdejstviya produktov deleniya na smesi gazov okisi ugleroda i vodoroda, a takzhe na vodyanye pary. Ni odna iz obsledovannykh do nastoyashchego vremeni sistem ne podaet bol'shikh nadezhd na perspektivnoe ispol'zovanie ehtogo metoda dlya khimicheskogo proizvodstva. (author)}
