Abstract

In the presence of noble metal catalysts unsaturated fatty acids such as eruic acid and linoleic acid capture hydrogen and tritium quantitatively. The hydrogenation reaction of eruic acid has already been reported. The experimental results of the reaction of hydrogen and tritium with linoleic acid are now discussed in this paper. Obviously, the use of linoleic acid shows some advantages compared with eruic acid: + the hydrogenation reaction is faster, + linoleic acid is liquid, so that the choice of additional solvents is easier, and + linoleic acid is a more or less cheap natural product, which is available from seeds, so that the cost of a technical tritium removal plant is not increased by the basic chemical material.
