Abstract : The conversion of plutonium nitrate solution to plutonium oxide via oxalate precipitation route leads to a large volume of oxalate supernatant which contains'30 mg/dm'of Pu in'3 mol/dm'HNO, and 0.1 mol/dm'oxalic acid. Plutonium can be recovered from such solutions after the destruction of oxalic acid for which the conventional methods are:(1) Addition of KMn04 and then destroying excess KMnO, by H202.(2) Concentration of the supernatant to high terminal HNO, concentration of 10 mol/dm'at high temperature 1. The first method...
