|Abstract:||Separation of actinides and fission products is a challenging task for the chemists working at various stages of the nuclear fuel cycle, the most important being the reprocessing and waste management processes involved at the tail end. Amongst the various separation techniques, liquid membrane based separation methods are getting increasingly popular due to factors such as ligand economy, high efficiency, low power consumption and easy scale-up due to a compact design etc. Techniques such as emulsion liquid membrane and hollow fibre based non-dispersive solvent extraction methods are reported to be more efficient than the solvent extraction based separation methods which are limited by emulsion/third phase or crud formation. The present review is a compilation of literature reports on liquid membrane based separation studies involving mainly the actinides and fission products.|
