Abstract Scope Molten salt systems are expected to play a significant role in next generation nuclear reactor designs and pyrochemical fuel reprocessing. Thus, nuclear safeguards techniques must continue to accommodate these new systems. Most safeguards techniques currently in use were developed for aqueous rather than for molten salt systems. The electrochemical technique of cyclic voltammetry may offer an approach to material monitoring in molten salt systems. Electrochemical testing was conducted on a eutectic LiCl-KCl system containing lanthanide chlorides serving as actinide surrogates. Since most assumptions associated with cyclic voltammetry and its applications were also developed for aqueous systems, some preliminary studies were conducted to study the reversibility and oxidation tendencies of the above molten-salt system before applying any mathematical relationships to the collected data. Lanthanide surrogate testing was then conducted to evaluate our system and compare results to the literature.
