Continuous recovery of uranium oxides by electrolysis of M2MoO4-M2Mo2O7-UO2MoO4 melts (M = Li, Na, K, Cs)

Continuous recovery of uranium oxides by electrolysis of M2MoO4-M2Mo2O7-UO2MoO4 melts (M = Li,... Effect of the electrolyte composition and of the solvent-salt cation on the oxygen coefficient of the cathodic product (O/U atomic ratio) and basic characteristics of the potentiostatic electrodeposition of uranium dioxide in prolonged recovery of uranium oxides from electrolytes of the system M2MoO4-M2Mo2O7-UO2MoO4 Melts (M = Li, Na, K, Cs) in air was analyzed. A decrease in the UO2MoO4 concentration and accumulation of M2Mo2O7 in the electrolyte in the course of a prolonged electrolysis suppress the solvolysis of uranyl ions and make lower the oxygen coefficient of the cathodic product. Li2MoO4-based melts possessing pronounced oxygenacceptor properties exhibit an anomalous behavior in these experiments. The current efficiency, initial current density, and deposition rate of the product decrease as electrolytes are depleted of uranium. In discussions of numerical data, it is necessary to take into account the formation of lower valence forms of uranium due to the chemical corrosion of the cathodic product, and in the case of melts of the lithium system, the additional cathodic process in which the solvent is reduced.
