Heterophase phenomena of tritium fractionation in water systems

Tritium is the only one of the radioactive isotopes that a filtering system is unable to neutralize. It is produced by collateral fi ssion processes in nuclear reactors and displays itself in radioactive wastes and effl uents in diff erent forms of tritium oxides. Thus the development and application of nuclear energy entails a challenging problem of treating tritium-containing radioactive wastewater.The paper deals with tritium water isotopologues, namely, with prototritium water and deuterotritium water.
