Thorium Extraction Methods - UC Homepages

2017-3-28  when thorium-232 absorbs a neutron, it transmutes to uranium-238, a viable nuclear fuel. Originally, thorium extraction was a process that was high in energy and waste, using large amounts of heat and solvent. Modern science is working to produce thorium more efficiently. In this paper, several common thorium extraction processes are discussed.

Fluorination of Rare Earth, Thorium and Uranium Oxides

Monazite is a light rare earth phosphate which is difficult to process when using conventional chemical processes. It is considered to be one of the most important commercial sources of thorium and lanthanides. Using conventional chemicals to process monazite have caused severe environmental damage as has been demonstrated in the Baotou region, China.
