 In connection with the chemical processing of molten-salt breeder reactor
(MSBR) fuels, information was sought on mutual solubilities of thorium and
certain rare earth lanthanides in bismuth solutions over a temperature range
of 350° to 700° C. Although individual solubilities of thorium bismuthides
and most lanthanide bismuthides are known, few data are available on their
mutual solubilities or the interractions of thorium, bismuth, and the 
lanthanides. For the study, the system was~ contained in an argon atmosphere
in a molybdenum crucible. The components of the system interracted to form
solid compounds;2'
