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… Expand
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) forExpand
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 anExpand
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 theExpand
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. Expand
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 waterExpand


Water-Hydrogen Isotope Exchange Process Analysis
Abstract The use of a numerical method is needed to find a solution to the equation system describing a general case of heterogeneous isotope exchange between gaseous hydrogen and liquid water in aExpand
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 areExpand
