Title

Bonding Technetium-99m to hydroxyapatite particles: opportunity to use hydroxyapatite as a means to remove Tc-99 from nuclear waste streams

Abstract

"This research examines the feasibility of using a new type of hydroxyapatite developed at the University of Missouri-Rolla (UMR-HA) to remove radioactive Technetium-99m (Tc-99m) from a de-ionized water (DIW) solution. The purpose was to study the possibility of using UMR-HA to remove Tc-99 from nuclear waste streams...This thesis studied the use of a reducing agent, tin chloride (SnCl₂) together with two different bonding agents, methylenediphosphonic acid (MDP) and hydroxy-1, ethane-1, diphosphonic acid (HEDP) to see how they affected Tc-HA bonding to UMR-HA"--Abstract, leaf iii.
