ACCURATE COULOMETRIC DETERMINATION OF THE URANIUM CONTENT OF URANIUM REFERENCE MATERIALS. I. STUDY ON THE INTERFERENCE OF IMPURITIES
Controlled potential coulometry is considered to be a reliable method for the determination of the uranium content of candidate uranium reference materials. Although base materials selected for that purpose have a high purity, they nevertheless contain traces of metallic impurities such as copper, iron and molybdenum, which might interfere in the electrochemical process of uranium reduction. A study of the behaviour of these elements during the preelectrolysis and electrolysis of uranium solutions has been performed. An home made coulometer designed for high precision analysis has been used for that purpose.
