Abstract

"The rapid increase in radioisotope applications necessitates improved technology for separation and purification of the fission product elements. Electrodialysis techniques employing Permutit anion exchange membrane(3148) were used to separate technetium from zirconium. The method was based upon the stability of the pertechnetate ion in alkaline solutions and the precipitation of zirconium from alkaline solutions. The separation of radiotechnetium and radiozirconium was effected with a two cell electrodialysis unit employing an anion exchange membrane. The solution medium consisted of fluoride and nitrate ions which were made basic with sodium hydroxide. The minimum basicity for a good separation was 0.1N NaOH"--Abstract, page ii.
