Development of silver nanoparticle-doped adsorbents for the separation and recovery of radioactive iodine from alkaline solutions.


Removing radioactive iodine from solutions containing fission products is essential for nuclear facility decontamination, radioactive waste treatment, and medical isotope production. For example, the production of high-purity fission 99Mo by irradiation of 235U with neutrons involves the removal of iodine from an alkaline solution of the irradiated target… (More)
