ABSTRACT

The use of low-enriched uranium aluminide targets for the production of fission Mo-99 is presented. Former tests on uranium silicide targets are also reviewed. Tests of dissolution of aluminide miniplates in alkaline medium were performed, showing interesting results for the replacement of current HEU targets.
