Transuranium Elements

The advent of the nuclear age has given mankind the ability to synthesize new elements of higher molecular weight and number. While these man-made elements are exciting research curiosities, they are short-lived and radioactive so they are of little commercial interest from a separations standpoint at this time.

Plutonium

 

Plutonium is commercially separated using ion exchange resins but this work is only carried out by qualified laboratories under carefully controlled conditions. DuPont does not recommend the use of our resins in the highly ionizing conditions of this separation.
