    229Th was isolated from a long-stored 233U sample using an anion exchanger and 8 M HCl. Thorium was separated from macroamounts of inactive impurities on an anion exchanger in aqueous-methanol HNO3 solutions. A tandem generator system was developed for repeated isolation of 225Ac ( a, 10 days)...

    The phytoremediation potential of native trees in a U and Th contaminated wetland was examined. Based on measurements of the annual biomass of leaves and their contaminant concentrations, we estimated the reduction in soil contamination over time. Significant differences among tree species were...

    ThO(cr) was dissolved in the solutions containing various carbonate ion concentrations, and the results were compared with thorium solubility in a domestic granitic groundwater having very low ionic strength. The soluble thorium concentration excluding colloids after phase separation increased...
