Brand New Technique For Radioactive Waste Processing
Structure of phosphine

Scientists from Russian Institute of Geochemistry and Analytic Chemistry have developed a new technology for radioactive waste processing.
      
      Mentioned technology allows extracting over 99% of uranium, 99.7% of plutonium and over 98% of americium from liquid radioactive wastes. Russian chemists used diphenyl phosphine oxide, which is able to form stable complex compounds with uranium, its decay products and long-lived radionuclides.
      
      The agent is too expensive, thus scientists have developed a technique for using its trace quantities for extracting maximum of hazardous compounds.
