New Test Method for The Ion Exchange Separation of Small Volume Samples Containing Uranium, Americium and Plutonium Prior to Isotopic and Content Analysis

1. Scope

To develop consensus standards for, and promote commercialization of, nuclear fuel cycle, materials, products and processes. The Committee will provide internationally accepted standards which facilitate the commerce; worker safety; public and environemental health; and regulatory compliance within the Nuclear Fuel Cycle. All aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle are included with emphasis on nuclear fuel and reactor materials processing, analysis, and disposal/disposition technolgies and applications. Nuclear fuel cycle activites of both the commercial nuclear industry and the defense community fall within the scope of this committee.

The work of the Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM International committees and national and international organizations having mutual interest.

Keywords

nuclear fuel cycle, analytical chemistry,

Rationale

This proposed standard offers an alternative to the ASTM C1411 standard. The proposed standard uses smaller volumes, only one resin column, and HCl and HF are not required.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
