Accurate analyses of radioactive materials are key technologies supporting the use of nuclear energy. For example, in the field of “back-end”, determination of radioactive nuclides in the waste is indispensable for safety disposal. There is, however, no way to analyze for some of them yet. For speed-up and labor-saving, improvement of analytical techniques is also desired. We investigate the chemical reactions of actinides and fission products in solution to understand their chemical properties. Based on these fundamental knowledge, we construct the novel chemical analysis procedures with pretreatment such as dissolution, separation, concentration, etc.
