Abstract:

The paper is a review of the primary investigations of the use of high boiling organic fluids as coolants and moderators in nuclear reactors. Results of radio-chemical, thermo-physical, corrosive, and neutron-physical investigations are discussed. The paper furnishes data covering the use of destructive hydrogenation for the regeneration of products of radiolysis of organic coolants.
