Oxidation – reduction reactions of simple hydroxamic acids and plutonium ( IV ) ions in nitric acid


Simple hydroxamic acids such as formoand aceto-hydroxamic acids have been proposed as suitable reagents for the separation of either Pu and/or Np from U in modified or single cycle Purex based solvent extraction processes designed to meet the emerging requirements of advanced fuel cycles. The stability of these hydroxamic acids is dominated by their… (More)
