*TSUYOSHI MURAKAMI1, YOSHIHARU SAKAMURA1, KOICHI UOZUMI1 (1. Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry)

Keywords:partitioning and transmutation, long lived fission product, Si-Zr alloy, molten salt

Electrochemical behavior of Si-Zr alloy was investigated in LiCl-KCl melt at 723 K. The obtained results showed that Zr dissolved into the melt by the anodic oxidation of Si-Zr alloy with evolving SiCl4 gas.
