Direct conversion of uranium dioxide UO2 to uranium tetrafluoride UF4 using the fluorinated ionic liquid [Bmim][PF6]

Author affiliations

Abstract

The industrial fluorination of UO2 to UF4 is based on a complex process involving the manipulation of a large amount of HF, a very toxic and corrosive gas. We present here a safer way to accomplish this reaction utilizing ionic liquid [Bmim][PF6] as a unique reaction medium and fluoride source.
