Abstract

Fission products recoiling from a 252Cf spontaneous fission source were stopped in various mixtures of inert gases containing CO and NO. For the elements of the transisition metal series Mo, Tc, Ru, and Rh previous observations of pure carbonyl complexes were reproduced. However, no formation of volatile mixed nitrosyl-carbonyl complexes or pure nitrosyl complexes for these elements have been observed. Instead, efficient production of volatile nitrosyl compounds for single iodine atoms, presumably nitrosyl iodide, NOI, was detected. This observation is of interest as potential transport path for iodine in nuclear accident scenarios and as a model for radiochemistry with the recently discovered heaviest halogen tennessine (Z=117).
