Spent nuclear fuel contains precious and highly radioactive metals, such as plutonium, americium, curium, europium. Closed nuclear fuel cycle technology allows to distinguish these elements from spent nuclear fuel. Americium and curium are very expensive metals. They are used only in the most important areas of nuclear technology (Gureckij et al., 1987). There are many methods for separation these metals from each other, like extraction methods, pyrochemical methods, chromatographic methods. This paper considers ion-exchange chromatography method with complexation during elution.
