Determination of the Trace Elements in $UO_2$ Powder by ICP-AES Directyl Coupled with Extraction Chromatography

추출크로마토그래피와 유도결합플라스마 원자방출분광법을 이용한 이산화우라늄분말 중 미량금속불순물 분석

An ICP-AES system directly connected with a separation column was used in order to determine the trace elements in $UO_2$ powder promptly and reduce the volume of the waste solution. The outlet of a separation column, which was filled with Teflon powder ($330\;{\mu}m$) coated with tri-n-butyl phosphate (TBP) as extractant, was directly connected with sample injection tube of ICP-AES. Eleven elements including molybdenum in $UO_2$ powder were separated and determined simultaneously. Recoveries of these elements were $91{\sim}110%$ and these results were agreed with those of solvent extraction methods. This method was applicable to quality control in manufacturing nuclear fuel.
