Scope The use of molten salts as a coolant in molten salt reactors (MSR) and concentrating solar power (CSP) systems offers many advantages including low operating pressures, high temperatures, and favorable heat transfer. Molten salts are also widely used in the metal processing and nuclear fuels reprocessing industries. Despite the advantages, the highly aggressive molten salts present a challenging environment for salt facing materials.

This symposium covers all aspects of materials science, chemistry, and electrochemistry in molten salt systems for diverse purposes such as energy transfer, energy storage, metallurgical processing, and actinide recovery.

Abstracts are solicited in, but not limited to, the following topics:

Corrosion of salt-facing materials
Salt effects in graphite and moderator materials
Fission product embrittlement
Alloy selection and design for molten salt applications
Interaction of fission products with materials
Mechanical and creep properties
Electrochemistry for metal processing and actinide recovery
Salt chemistry effects on materials including radiolysis
Heat exchanger design
Welding and cladding issues
Waste handling and actinide recovery
Electrochemistry for salt property evaluation
