The Group of Applied Radiochemistry (ARC
) is involved in the research and development of the
purification methods of hydrogen and hydrogen isotope gases. The need for this research
is dictated by the fact that the investigation of nuclear processes in the particle
accelerators is conducted in hydrogen chambers.
As a part of the Laboratory of Muon Catalysis, our group has been working for
several years on the project "Muon catalysis of nuclear synthesis and its possible
applications." Later we were collaborating with the Group of Meso-Nuclear Reactions
on the international project "High Precision Study of Muon Catalyzed Fusion in D2 and HD Gases
see preprint ¹2395: "Preparation of pure deuterium-hydrogen for the investigation of muon catalysis of the dd-synthesis.
The work was conducted at St.Petersburg
Nuclear Physics Institute (PNPI
, Russia) and Paul Sherrer Institute.

Currently the ARC group and the Cryogenic & Superconductive Techniques Laboratory
(see "MuSun – muon capture", LKST.
are participating in the experiments of international MuSun
project conducted at Paul Sherrer Institute.

The developed method of phosphorus-32 extraction from the irradiated sulfur-32 target in the conditions of housing ¹6 using a five-section box made it possible to obtain a highly active drug
phosphorus-32 for biological purposes in the laboratory on the body ¹50.
