Abstract
The objective of this work is to use electrochemical techniques to quantify the electrode reaction rate of some rare-earth elements and uranium in a LiCl-KCl eutectic electrolyte at 500oC. The exchange current densities of the oxidation-reduction couples of M3+/M0 (La3+/La0, Ce3+/Ce0, Pr3+/Pr0, Nd3+/Nd0,Gd3+/Gd0, Y3+/Y0, U3+/U0) on a tungsten electrode were measured by applying a linear polarization resistance technique. A region of linear dependence of potential on applied current could be found to describe the reaction rate of oxidation-reduction system. From these measurements, the estimated exchange current density was 0.38 mA/cm2 for uranium, and was within the range of 0.27 to 0.38mA/cm2 for rare-earth elements.
