Remarkably enhanced direct dissolution of plutonium oxide in task-specific ionic liquid: insights from electrochemical and theoretical investigations

Author affiliations

Abstract

The present work envisages an approach for direct dissolution of PuO2 in a task-specific ionic liquid (TSIL). An attractive possibility to electrodeposit plutonium from the mixture of TSIL and PuO2 has been explored further. The carboxyl functional group attached to the TSIL plays a key role in facilitating the dissolution of plutonium ions.
