urâniyom (#)

Fr.: uranium   

A → radioactive metallic → chemical element; symbol U. → Atomic number 92; → atomic weight 238.0289; → melting post 1,132 °C; → boiling point 3,818°C; → specific gravity 19.1 at 25 °C. Uranium has 14 known → isotopes of which 238U is the most abundant in nature. This isotope (→ half-life 4.5 billion years) is 138 times more abundant than 235U (half-life 710 million years). The metal was first isolated by the French chemist Eugène-Melchior Peligot in 1841. See also: → uranium oxide, → uranium conversion, → uranium dioxide, → uranium enrichment, → uranium hexafluoride, → uranium-233, → uranium-235, → uranium-238, → plutonium, → fissile isotope, → fertile isotope, → yellowcake.

From the name of the planet → Uranus. The German chemist Martin-Heinrich Klaproth discovered the element in 1789, following the German/English astronomer William Hershel's discovery of the planet in 1781.

uranium conversion
  هاگرد ِ اورانیوم   
hâgard-e urâniom

Fr.: convesrion de l'uranium   

A chemical process converting the → yellowcake to → uranium hexafluoride. The uranium hexafluoride is heated to become a gas and loaded into cylinders. When it cools, it condenses into a solid.

uranium; → conversion.

uranium dioxide
  دی‌اکسید ِ اورانیوم   
dioksid-e urâniyom

Fr.: dioxyde d'uranium   

A black crystalline solid (UO2pitchblende, carnotite, and autunite and is used chiefly as a source of nuclear energy by fission of the radioisotope uranium-235. After the → uranium hexafluoride is enriched, a fuel fabricator converts it into uranium dioxide powder and presses the powder into fuel pellets.

uranium; → dioxide.

uranium enrichment
  پُردارش ِ اورانیوم   
pordâreš-e urâniyom

Fr.: enrichissement de l'uranium   

The process by which the percentage of → fissile uranium in a sample is increased. Uranium obtained from mining contains several → isotopes of uranium in different compositions, such as U-238 (~99%), U-235 (~0.7%), and U-234 (~0.02%). Among them, U-235 is the only one that is fissile, i.e. can be used in a → nuclear reactor to produce heat (and consequently electricity) in a controlled manner. As such, the concentration of U-235 as a fuel used in a reactor needs to be increased, which is done using several techniques, such as → gaseous diffusion.

uranium; → enrichment.

uranium hexafluoride
  هگزافلویءورید ِ اورانیوم   
hegzâfluorid-e urâniyom

Fr.: hexafluorure d'uranium   

A white solid compound (UF6) of → uranium and → fluorine obtained by chemical treatment of → yellowcake, forming a vapor at temperatures above 56 °C. It contains both of the naturally occurring → isotopes of uranium U-235 and U-238. The isotopes are separated on the basis of differences in their diffusion properties. UF6 is the process medium for all separation processes for → uranium enrichment. It is essential that fluoride be a pure element and therefore solely the mass differences of U-235 and U-238 determine the separation process.

uranium; → hexa-; → fluoride.

uranium oxide
  اکسید ِ اورانیوم   
oksid-e urâniyom

Fr.: oxyde d'uranium   

A chemical compound made up of → uranium and → oxygen. The most common forms of uranium oxide are U3O8 and UO2. Both oxide forms are solids that have low solubility in water and are relatively stable over a wide range of environmental conditions. Triuranium octaoxide (U3O8) is the most stable form of uranium and is the form most commonly found in nature. → Uranium dioxide (UO2) is the form in which uranium is most commonly used as a → nuclear reactor fuel. At ambient temperatures, UO2 will gradually convert to U3O8.

uranium; → oxide.


Fr.: uranium-233   

A → fissile isotope bred by the → fertile isotope thorium-232. It is similar in weapons quality to → plutonium-239.
