Efficient recovery of minor actinides from a genuine spent fuel solution has been successfully demonstrated by the CyMe4‐BTBP/DMDOHEMA extractant mixture dissolved in octanol. The continuous countercurrent process, in which actinides(III) were separated from lanthanides(III), was carried out in laboratory centrifugal contactors using an optimized flow‐sheet involving a total of 16 stages. The process was divided into 9 stages for extraction from a 2 M nitric acid feed solution, 3 stages for…

Direct separation of minor actinides from high level liquid waste by Me2-CA-BTP/SiO2-P adsorbent
TLDR
Considering the good overall performance of Me2-CA-BTP/SiO2-P adsorbent, it has great application potential for directly separating MA from HLLW, and is expected to establish an advanced simplified MA separation process, which is very meaningful for the development of nuclear energy.
