ASSESSING MEDIUM EFFECTS IN TALSPEAK-LIKE SYSTEMS VIA CALORIMETRIC ENTROPY TITRATIONS
This study investigated the application of calorimetric entropy titrations to the light lanthanides in TALSPEAK-like systems. Since TALSPEAK operates in an unusual ionic medium, this work was expanded to probe medium effects ...
Synthesis and Characterization of Aqueous Pyridine Ligands for Actinide Lanthanide Separation
Responsible stewardship of used nuclear fuel requires the operation of a closed nuclear fuel cycle and proper management of the actinide materials through transmutation. The separation and isolation of the minor actinides ...
UTILIZATION OF TRADITIONAL AND NOVEL NMR SPECTROSCOPIC TECHNIQUES TO PROBE INTERACTIONS IN THE ORGANIC PHASE OF LIQUID-LIQUID SOLVENT EXTRACTION SYSTEMS
Solvent extraction is a technique commonly used is the reprocessing of used nuclear fuel elements. It utilizes the partitioning of a metal ion between two immiscible phases, typically an acidic aqueous phase and a light ...
COORDINATION CHEMISTRY OF f-ELEMENTS IN THE TALSPEAK PROCESS
A key step in the advancement of the nuclear fuel cycle in the U.S. is transmutation of the long-lived activation product actinides (Am3+ and Cm3+). Transmutation is viable once the minor actinides Am3+ and Cm3+ have been ...
