A team of Russian scientists from several large scientific centres have created an organic compound that helps to more effectively separate and components of used fuel during reprocessing, the press service of Lomonosov Moscow State University reported. This supports research to develop the technologies needed for the transition to a closed nuclear fuel cycle which will expand the nuclear fuel base and significantly reduce the need to mine natural uranium in large volumes. Radiochemical reprocessing of used fuel and extraction of valuable nuclear materials, primarily plutonium and uranium, is a key stage necessary for closing the fuel cycle.
