Abstract

It has been reported by the present authors that behavior of tritium release from solid breeder grain is consisted of diffusion in grain, tritium transfer at surface layer and surface reactions on grain surface such as adsorption or isotope exchange reactions. Tritium release curves estimated using the tritium release model gave good agreement with observed tritium release curves from Li4SiO4, Li2ZrO3 or LiAlO2. Tritium release behavior from Li2TiO3 under humid purge gas, dry purge gas and dry purge gas with hydrogen conditions is discussed in this study, tritium release curves using the release model that we proposed previously give a good agreements with experimental tritium release curves. Tritium effective diffusivity in the crystal grain of Li2TiO3 is also estimated in this study using a curve-fitting method applied to the release curves obtained under the humid purge gas condition. It is discussed that change of color of Li2TiO3 surface under hydrogen purge gas condition is observed and this phenomenon might affect tritium release behavior from Li2TiO3.
