Abstract

High purity 238-U oxide in amounts up to 60g is required for capture cross-section measurements. The material needs to be purified for the 234-Th daughter of 238-U in order to reduce the natural gamma background. It has been shown that 60g of U-3O-8 can be purified by cation exchange and retransformed in U-3O-8 in about 20 h. When the target is ready for the use the 234-Th content is 2% of the saturation value.
