What is the density of thorium nitrate? How do you make thorium nitrate? What is thorium nitrate used for? What is the half life of thorium nitrate? Is thorium nitrate radioactive
Thorium(IV) nitrate is a chemical compound, a salt of thorium and nitric acid with the formula Th(NO3)4. A white solid in its anhydrous form, it can form tetra- and pentahydrates. As a salt of thorium it is weakly radioactive.
Thorium nitrate can dissolve in several different organic solvents including alcohols, ketones, esters and ethers. This can be used to separate different metals such as the lanthanides. With ammonium nitrate in the aqueous phase, thorium nitrate prefers the organic liquid, and the lanthanides stay with the water.
MATERIALS FOR NUCLEAR ENGINEERING PURPOSES
Thorium is a radioactive element that is currently the best contender for replacing uranium as nuclear fuel for nuclear reactors. It provides greater safety benefits, and an absence of non-fertile isotopes, and it is both more available and abundant on Earth.
