Comparative screening tests reduced the list of promising esters to di-[2-ethylhexyl] phosphoric acid, which was commercially available due to its use in the uranium industry. The rate of extraction of beryllium is slow relative to that of other bivalent metal...

The resultant single-phase material has been found to be oxidation resistant at 1371 °C up to at least the equimolar ZrBe 13 -UBe 13 composition, which contains 42 wt% uranium. The (U,Zr)Be 13 – 10 wt% uranium material exhibits a penetration of 0.013 mm...

An oxygen concentration cell then develops. Corrosion naturally becomes concentrated into small regions beneath...

During the refining operation in the production of uranium, UO 2 is fluorinated at elevated temperatures (e.g., 500 to 600 °C) with HF to produce UF 4 or UF 6 for separation of U235 ( Ref 6 ). The materials of construction for this processing equipment must resist corrosion by HF at both high...
