This test method covers the determination of boron, silicon and technetium in hydrolyzed uranium hexafluoride (UF6) by Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) after separation of the uranium by solid phase extraction.
The method is capable of measuring the concentration of boron, silicon and technetium in uranium hexafluoride. Limits for these contaminants are set in C787 and C996. It supports demonstration of compliance with nuclear fuel cycle standards and is therefore of value to companies and organizations involved in conversion of uranium to uranium hexafluoride, uranium enrichment and nuclear fuel fabrication.
