Abstract

Liquid sodium is used as the coolant of the fast breeder reactor (FBR). A weak point of sodium is a high chemical reactivity with water or oxygen. So an idea of chemical reactivity suppression of liquid sodium itself is proposed. The idea is that nano-meter size particles (hereafter called nano-particles) are dispersed in liquid sodium, and an atomic interaction which is generated between nano-particle and sodium atoms is applied to suppress the chemical reactivity. We call sodium that has dispersed the nano-particle a Nano-fluid. Three key technologies which are the trial manufacture of Nano-fluid, the reaction property of the Nano-fluid and applicability of Nano-fluid to FBR Plant have been carried out to develop the Nano-fluid.
