Sequential analysis of Sr, Pu, Am and Cm: Low-level liquid radioactive effluents
Institute for Energy Technology, P.O. Box 40, 2027 Koeller, Norway
A new sequential procedure for the analysis of Pu, Am, Cm and Sr in low-level liquid radioactive effluents is presented. The proposed method utilises an actinide specific extraction chromatographic resin (TRU-Resin) for the isolation and separation of the actinides. 90Sr determination is accomplished via analysis of its progeny 90Y, which is purified with TBP extraction. The proposed method is simpler, faster and more robust than traditional ion exchange, extraction and precipitation methods used in routine analysis of actinides and 90Sr. The chemical yield of all analytes, when analysing 200 ml low-level effluent, is between 80-95%.
