Abstract

The behaviour of the radiologically important element iodine is extensively studied in SARNET2, a main concern being how much iodine could be present in the containment atmosphere in the event of a severe accident, and hence be released to the environment in the event of containment failure or containment venting. A main interest is the formation of gaseous organic iodine, which is difficult to remove by filtration; specific topics here are the reaction of iodine with paints on containment walls, and the formation/destruction of iodine oxides (IOx), as seen in several experiments so far performed.
