Abstract Magnesium and lead have been identified as tracers for the input accountability of plutonium in reprocessing plants where'as fission product 148Nd is used as a burn-up monitor. Ion exchange procedures developed for the separation and purification of Mg, Pb, and Nd from the dissolver solution of irradiated fuel for their mass spectrometric analyses are presented. Distribution ratio curves of Pb, Ce, Nd, and Sm in CH3OH-HNO3-H2O medium used in the development of the separation and… CONTINUE READING
