Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 September 2018
Status: active
Page Count: 18
ICS Code (Fissile materials and nuclear fuel technology): 27.120.30
scope:

These test methods cover procedures for the chemical, mass spectrometric, spectrochemical, nuclear, and radiochemical analysis of nuclear-grade plutonium nitrate solutions to determine compliance with specifications. 1.2 The analytical procedures appear in the following order:

Sections Plutonium by Controlled-Potential Coulometry 2

Plutonium by Amperometric Titration with Iron(II) 2

Plutonium by Diode Array Spectrophotometry Free Acid by Titration in an Oxalate Solution 8 to 15

Free Acid by Iodate Precipitation-Potentiometric Titration Test Method 16 to 22

Uranium by Arsenazo I Spectrophotometric Test Method 23 to 33

Thorium by Thorin Spectrophotometric Test Method 34 to 42

Iron by 1,10-Phenanthroline Spectrophotometric Test Method 43 to 50

Impurities by ICP-AES Chloride by Thiocyanate Spectrophotometric Test Method 51 to 58

Fluoride by Distillation-Spectrophotometric Test Method 59 to 66

Sulfate by Barium Sulfate Turbidimetric Test Method 67 to 74

Isotopic Composition by Mass Spectrometry 75 to 76

Plutonium-238 Isotopic Abundance by Alpha Spectrometry Americium-241 by Extraction and Gamma Counting 77 to 85

Americium-241 by Gamma Counting 86 to 94

Gamma-Emitting Fission Products, Uranium, and Thorium by Gamma-Ray Spectroscopy 94 to 102

Rare Earths by Copper Spark Spectrochemical Test Method 103 to 105

Tungsten, Niobium (Columbium), and Tantalum by Spectrochemical Test Method 106 to 114

Sample Preparation for Spectrographic Analysis for General Impurities 115 to 118

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific safeguard and safety hazard statements, see Section 6.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
