Abstract The quantitative understanding of the dissolution of nuclear fuel materials is essential for the process design and development of an industrial-scale nuclear fuel reprocessing plant. The main objective of this review article is to analyze the published data related to the dissolution of important nuclear materials, namely, urania, plutonia, thoria, and their oxides in the existing literature. The published results on rate-controlling step and reaction mechanism of dissolution… CONTINUE READING
