1.1 This test method describes the determination of total plutonium as plutonium(III) in nitrate and chloride solutions. The technique is applicable to solutions of plutonium dioxide powders and pellets (Test Methods ), nuclear grade mixed oxides (Test Methods ), plutonium metal (Test Methods ), and plutonium nitrate solutions (Test Methods ). Solid samples are dissolved using the appropriate dissolution techniques described in Practice . The use of this technique for other plutonium-bearing materials has been reported (, but final determination of applicability must be made by the user. The applicable concentration range for plutonium sample solutions is 10–200 g Pu/L. )
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
