Abstract Tritium has become an important radionuclide in commercial Pressurized Water Reactors because of its mobility and tendency to concentrate in plant systems as tritiated water during the recycling of reactor coolant. Small quantities of tritium are released in routine regulated effluents as liquid water and as water vapor. Tritium has become a focus of attention at commercial nuclear power plants in recent years due to inadvertent, low-level, chronic releases arising from routine… 

Tritium in water bodies around the Kaiga generating station

Tritium concentration was monitored in different water sources collected around Kaiga Nuclear Power plant, India. The concentration was in the ranges < 1.9–27.4 Bq L−1 (GM = 4.0 Bq L−1) for

Evaluation of Hydrogen Isotope Exchange Methodology on Adsorbents for Tritium Removal

Abstract The Savannah River National Laboratory has demonstrated a potential process that can be used to remove tritium from tritiated water using Pt-catalyzed molecular sieves. The process is an

Triton for Nuclear Fusion

In the nuclear fusion process that is permanently produced in the stars (suns) there is a thermonuclear reaction that uses as the main raw material the very first isotope of hydrogen, namely the

Applications of Radiolabelled Curcumin and Its Derivatives in Medicinal Chemistry

Although some drawbacks have yet to be addressed, and none of the radiolabelled curcuminoids have so far achieved clinical application, the studies performed hitherto provide useful insights and lay the foundation for further developments.

Unified Field Theory and Topology of Nuclei

This paper proposes that a nucleus has a lattice configuration. A nucleus can not be seen visually. The configuration of a nucleus is studied in theoretical models, such as lattice, NCFC, and water



Water-Hydrogen Isotope Exchange Process Analysis

The approximate analytical solution was derived from the ZXY-diagram (McCabe-Thiele diagram), which illustrates the solution of the renewed computer model called “EVIO-4.2” Several “unusual” results and dependences have been analyzed and explained.

Improvement of PNPI Experimental Industrial Plant Based on CECE Process for Heavy Water Detritiation

Abstract An updated experimental industrial plant of PNPI for the development of CECE technology is described. Experimental results for heavy water detritiation in different operating modes are
