The objective was to use electrochemical techniques to develop a thermodynamic understanding of actinide and lanthanide species in RTIL solutions, and use this data to effectively separate species with very similar chemical properties.
In consultation with a DOE collaborator, electrochemical methods and materials were evaluated and used to exploit the thermodynamic differences between similar chemical species enhancing the ability to selectively target and sequester individual species from mixtures. This project, in its third year, successfully completed phases 1, 2. Phase 3 was partially completed. The project expanded to include phase 4.
The following were specific goals for 2007-2008:
• To prepare RTIL solutions.
• To evaluate the potential window of RTIL solutions.
• To develop a fundamental understanding of the thermodynamic properties of actinide and lanthanide species such as Cm, Am, Ce, Nd, Eu, and Sm in RTIL solutions.
