The results providing advantages of thorium-232 as a reproducing nuclide in comparison with uranium-238 as a part of nuclear fuel of new generation reactors are presented. The explanation of the effects which were found earlier in numerical simulation of parameters of open thorium - plutonium nuclear fuel cycle is offered. Scientific and technical solutions allow considering the possibility of including thorium-232 in the fuel of nuclear reactors, which are based on existing design solutions, and beginning the design of new generation materials: a new generation of fuel rods and fuel assemblies, where the isotope uranium-238 will be completely replaced with thorium-232.
