Dr. Peterman is a distinguished staff scientist within the Aqueous Separations and Radiochemistry department at Idaho National Laboratory (INL). He has expertise in nuclear fuel cycle separations, radiation chemistry and f-element solution chemistry. At INL he has developed processes for the separation of fission products from acidic dissolved nuclear fuel, and developed and characterized fluorinated aromatic dithiophosphinic acid extractants. These unusual molecules exhibit remarkable selectivity for trivalent actinides over fission product lanthanides, which is a key unresolved challenge in developing closed nuclear fuel cycles. In the area of radiation chemistry, he designed and commissioned an irradiation test loop for the investigation of gamma radiolytic degradation of solvent extraction process flowsheets. He has numerous publications in the areas of separations chemistry and radiation chemistry, and holds seven US patents. His research teams have been recognized with an R&D 100 Award in 2011, a 2014 Secretary of Energy’s Honor Award for Salt Waste Disposal Technologies and a 2015 US-DOE Certificate of Appreciation for the INL Solvent Degradation and Radiation Chemistry Team.
