PHYSICAL PROPERTIES AND CHEMICAL REACTION BEHAVIOUR OF LI-17PB-83 RELATED TO ITS USE AS A FUSION REACTOR BLANKET MATERIAL
The JRC-Ispra activities on physical and chemical properties of Li-17Pb-83 are presented in this paper. Experimental studies have been performed on thermodynamic properties, the hydrogen solubility at different pressures and temperatures and the chemical reactivity with air, water and some construction materials. A survey on further physical properties related to the use of Li-17Pb-83 as a tritium breeding material is presented. Finally, a description of future activities is given.
