[1D06] Chemical states of plutonium and gadolinium in fuel debris

*Shiho Watanabe1, Hiroto Ishii1, Yuji Ohishi1, Hiroaki Muta1, Ken Kurosaki1,2,3 (1. Osaka University, 2. Research Institute of Nuclear Engineering, University of Fukui, 3. JST PRESTO)

Keywords:Fuel debris, Oxidation, Plutonium, Gadolinium

(U, Zr, Ce)O2 and (U, Zr, Gd)O2 as simulated materials of the fuel debris under oxidized conditions were synthesized, where Ce is the simulated element of Pu. The chemical states of Ce and Gd in the oxidized simulated materials were studied.
