Description/Abstract:
In the work of Borst and co-workers on the cross sectoin of Xe(135) as a function of neutron energy, fission product iodine was recovered and precipitated with carrier iodine as PdI(2). The process of recovery of fission product iodine consisted of dissolving the uranium metal in preparations to precipitate PdI(2) when the SO(2) was removed by boiling. Erratic results obtained in attempts to repeat the process and get consistently high yields is reported. Essentially the same process is used, the most important modification being more precise control of the oxidation step.
