Institute of Nuclear Sciences

Chemical Processes Laboratory

In Chemical Process Laboratory, basic chemical process related to nuclear fuel technology and waste management are conducted. In this context, recovery, concentration and purification of uranium and thorium from ore or several sources, preparation and characterization of thorium and uranium compounds are carried out. Moreover, synthesis of various types of adsorbent/ion exchangers and separation of lanthanides(La, Ce), actinides(Th, U) and fission products(Cs, Sr) using naturally occuring isotopes are investigated.
