Mo3Ru5 MPd (M = Ru, Rh, Pd) as the simulated materials for the undissolved residue in the nuclear fuel reprocessing were prepared by arc melting method. The physical properties and oxidation behavior of the alloys were evaluated from viewpoint of the safety and economy in the reprocessing. The electrical resistivity, ρ, of Mo3Ru5RhPd was shown to be 0.8 μΩm at room temperature. On the other hand, the ρ values of samples without Rh were marked at 0.4 μΩm. The thermal properties of the each sample had the different thermal transfer characteristics. In particular, although the thermal conductivities of Mo3Ru5RhPd and Mo3Ru5Pd2 samples show almost the same value, the lattice thermal conductivities of both samples showed different values. Oxidation behavior was analyzed using the thermogravity(TG) and differential thermal analyses(DTA). The TG curve of each sample by oxidation showed different results. These results indicate that the simulated materials of the alloys without Rh: Mo-Ru-Pd were not appropriate to simulate the thermophysical characteristics of the typical simulated materials with undissolved residue Mo-Ru-Rh-Pd alloys. Therefore, in the spent nuclear fuel reprocessing, the mock test of reprocessing without to use Rh is difficult to carry out.
