Aqueous Reprocessing by THOREX Process

25 12 2013  Abstract In nature thorium exists mainly in a monoisotopic form with no fissile isotope for its use as fuel in nuclear reactors Though a fissile isotope of uranium 233 U is formed by neutron irradiation of fertile thorium in reactors the subsequent reprocessing of irradiated thorium for recovery purification and further handling of 233 U product accompanied by 232 U has remained a

How plentiful is Thorium in space askscience

So there is 10 times more Thorium than Uranium in universe but 1000 times less Thorium than Lead and 10 000 000 times less Thorium than Iron Actinides are really rare in universe Hydrogen is 10 000 more common in Universe than Iron so gathering Hydrogen is far more easier than gathering Thorium And Hydrogen is the basic fuel for fusion

Use of thorium 232 progeny to determine thorium activity

19 10 2009  As you know the long lived thorium decays initially to 228 Ra which has a 6 7 year half life the longest lived of all the radioactive progeny that follow Thus in a pure sample of 232 Th if no physical or chemical processes are ongoing that would disturb the 232 Th 228 Ra equilibrium it would require about 35 years before the 228 Ra achieved about the same activity as the 232 Th

Molten Salt Reactors

Therefore in practice the protactinium Pa 233 formed from the thorium needs to be removed before it decays to U 233 but this process is unproven at any scale It is relatively easy to remove the U 233 from the Pa 233 by fluorination to UF 6 before reducing it to UF 4
