The fuel used in Leblanc's reactor is the same low-enriched uranium used in light-water or CANDU reactors but in a very different form: a uranium tetrafluoride salt, which is mixed with other fluoride salts like lithium fluoride, potassium fluoride or zirconium fluoride (Leblanc is understandably cagey about the precise formulation).
As the battery discharges, it generates a lithium fluoride salt that further catalyzes the electrochemical activity of the electrolyte, Liang said.
A liquid-fluoride reactor uses a solution of several fluoride salts, typically lithium fluoride, beryllium fluoride, and uranium tetrafluoride, as the basic nuclear fuel.
