Usos / Função

• "Fluorine is used in the nuclear industries of many countries to make uranium hexafluoride for enrichment of uranium in the fissile 235U isotope...Repeated diffusion of UF6 (g) through porous plugs (or centrifugation of the vapor) concentrates 235UF6 relative to 238UF6, since the speed of diffusion varies inversely as the square root of the molecular mass. This enrichment is not needed for fueling power reactors with good neutron economy, such as the Canadian CANDU system. Gaseous diffusion plants for UF6 are expensive, not least because UF6 is itself an aggressive fluorinating agent and thus must be contained in special fluorine-resistant materials." 1
