Despite reports1,2,3,4 of the relative inertness of Reillexo\ HPQ anion exchange resin to chemical and radiological degradation, a low temperature exothermic reaction was identified for this resin in nitric acid using the Reactive System Screening Tool5 (RSST). The purpose of this work is to characterize the low temperature exothermic reaction, investigate its origin, and evaluate the risks it introduces to plutonium processing at the Savannah River Site. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
