报告题目：BTPhen derivatives and systems for separation of actinides and lanthanides
The key step in the “Partition and transmutation” strategy for management of nuclear high level waste from PUREX raffinate is separation of minor trivalent actinides, Am(III) and Cm(III), from chemically very similar lanthanides on industrial scale. Several decades of development in Europe have gave rise to bis-triazinyl-phenanthrolines or BTPhens and similar ligands for extraction of minor actinides via liquid-liquid extraction. The BTPhens, its derivatives and systems have proven as excellent tools to accomplish this challenging task.
Pavle Mocilac, Ph.D. in Chemical Sciences, Dublin City University in2012 with the thesis “Structural systematics of drug-like molecules: from benzamides to tennimides”. After his graduation, he started his research career as Radiation Technical Advisor and currently acting RadiationProtection Officer/Head of Radiation Safety Unit in University of Manchester. His extensive experience in radiation protection and radiation safety in research laboratories; also experience in research of radiochemistry, chemistry of uraniumand crystal structure analysis.
