Transport packing set for radioactive waste based on a radiation-protective polymeric matrix
In the article possibility of use of a neutron-protective polymeric cover for transport packing sets (containers) of the fulfilled nuclear fuel has been considered. Possibility of synthesis of high-disperse hydrophobic metalloorganosiloksan powders has been achieved. In oligomerny volume of siloksan chain of the powder chemically connected gadolinium with high concentration of atoms of gadolinium was contained. On the basis of this investigation its have been developed the scientific fundamentals of modifying of both structure and properties of polymeric composites. This modifying provides the directed regulation of their supramolecular structure by injection of both plasticizing and modifying additives. Settlement and experimental investigations of neutron-protective properties of the developed polymeric composite were conducted.
