I haven't answered this because it seemed too easy. The fission products of U-233 aren't significantly different than those of U-235 as shown in the wikipedia graph, with perhaps a shift to the lighter elements.
The capture-to-fission ratio is much smaller than the other two major fissile fuels 235 U and 239 U. Typically, when uranium 233 nucleus undergoes fission, the nucleus splits into two smaller nuclei (triple fission can also rarely occur), along with a few neutrons (the average is 2.48 neutrons per fission for thermal fission) and release of energy in the form of heat and gamma rays .
233 U is a fissile isotope, which means 233 U is capable of undergoing fission reaction after absorbing thermal neutron. Moreover 233 U meets also alternative requirement that the amount (~2.48 per one fission by thermal neutron) of neutrons produced by fission of 233 U is sufficient to sustain a nuclear fission chain reaction.
29.04.2012 · Hi, what are the immediate fission products of U233 ? Is the first fission reaction of U233 same as U235 producing Ba and Kr but just different isotopes than U235 ? I would appreciate any help. Hi, what are the immediate fission products of U233 ? Is the first fission …
It is disturbing to think that so many people have such a huge misunderstanding of nuclear fission technology that they take action to make U-233 an expensive waste product, instead of more accurately treating it as a potent energy resource that would become more valuable the more it is used.
