Title: Evaluating bis(2-ethylhexyl) methanediphosphonic acid (H 2DEH[MDP]) based polymer ligand film (PLF) for plutonium and uranium extraction

Abstract

This paper describes a new analyte extraction medium called polymer ligand film (PLF) that was developed to rapidly extract radionuclides. PLF is a polymer medium with ligands incorporated in its matrix that selectively and quickly extracts analytes. The main focus of the new technique is to shorten and simplify the procedure for chemically isolating radionuclides for determination through alpha spectroscopy. The PLF system was effective for plutonium and uranium extraction. The PLF was capable of co-extracting or selectively extracting plutonium over uranium depending on the PLF composition. As a result, the PLF and electrodeposited samples had similar alpha spectra resolutions.
