Abstract Scope The Multipurpose hYbrid Research Reactor for High-tech Applications (MYRRHA), is a research facility that will be the first prototype in the world of a large scale accelerator driven system (ADS). An extensive R&D program on LBE coolant chemistry is being conducted for MYRRHA. We focus our R&D efforts on; 1) oxygen control and monitoring, 2) chemistry of corrosion products and their purification and 3) evaporation and immobilization of hazardous radionuclides from LBE. This presentation aims at giving an overview of our progress in understanding and managing LBE coolant chemistry, focusing on oxygen and corrosion products chemistry. Experience gained from various LBE experimental facilities with chemistry monitoring and control systems such as oxygen sensor, corrosion products sensor, electrochemical oxygen pumps, PbO mass exchanger, hydrogen bubbling system as well as a cold trap will be shared. In addition, the coolant chemistry control strategy for MYRRHA will be discussed.
