Description/Abstract:
SEVERAL DIFFERENT METHODS WERE INVESTIGATED FOR THEIR POSSIBLE APPLICA TION TO THE SEPARATION, IN AN UNDISTURBED STATE, OF RADIOCHEMICAL SPEC IES PRODUCED BY A PULSED REACTOR SIMULATION OF AN UNDERWATER NUCLEAR D ETONATION. SOME SUCCESS WAS OBTAINED WITH CHROMATOGRAPHIC, ELECTROPHO RESIS, AND ADSORPTION TECHNIQUES. THE EFFECTS OF THE AGE OF THE SEAWA TER AND OF HIGH LEVELS OF RADIATION ON THE PHYSICAL-CHEMICAL STATES OF THE RADIOCHEMICAL SPECIES WERE ALSO STUDIED. VERY LARGE PERCENTAGES OF RADIONUCLIDES WERE FOUND TO UNDERGO ADSORPTION ON CONTAINER SURFACE S DESPITE THE HIGH IONIC STRENGTH OF THE SEAWATER.
