This book deals with the separation of nuclear materials into their chemical components in order to reduce the volume of high-level nuclear waste from weapons production and nuclear power generation. The chemistry of the actinide elements (actinium to lawrencium), crucial to the separations, is discussed in detail. The book also presents an overview of the enormous environmental legacy from the production of nuclear weapons in the United States and the former Soviet Union. A final chapter is devoted to accelerator-driven transmutation technologies for nuclear waste treatment.
