Chemistry of the selective complexants for the downstream of the cycle of nuclear fuel

The nuclear fuel, after irradiation during approximately 3 years in nuclear thermal power station, has a very complex chemical composition since it contains almost all the elements of the periodic table, sometimes in very small quantity. In particular actinides known as minor appear bus in very small proportion (approximately 1% in mass), and which are heavier than uranium It acts mainly of the americium and the curium which are extremely radiotoxic and have very long lifespans, several thousands to several million years.
