Gamma-Radiolytic Stability of Solvents Containing C5-BPP (2,6-Bis(5-(2,2-dimethylpropyl)-1H-pyrazol-3-yl)pyridine) for Actinide(III)/Lanthanide(III) Separation
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2016
The stability of solvents containing the C5-BPP (2,6-Bis(5-(2,2-dimethylpropyl)-1H-pyrazol-3-yl)pyridine) extractant against gamma-irradiation up to 330 kGy adsorbed dose was evaluated using HPLC mass spectrometric and solvent extraction methods. The main radiolysis products were identified using high-resolution mass spectrometry. Quantitative analysis of the residual C5-BPP concentration in irradiated samples was accomplished by a specifically developed MRM (Multiple Reaction Monitoring) method. A mixture of C5-BPP with 2-bromohexanoic acid in kerosene and 1-octanol, which had been used in an actinide(III)/lanthanide(III) separation process demonstration test, was also studied for its radiolytic stability and a remarkable protective effect of the presence of nitric acid during irradiation was found.
