  "abstract": "<p>A selected composition of the initial fuel of the Molten Salt Fast Reactor (MSFR) is assessed by differential</p>\n\n<p>scanning calorimetry (DSC) for melting point determination and by Knudsen effusion mass spectrometry</p>\n\n<p>(KEMS) for vaporization behaviour. Partial vapour pressures and thermodynamic activities of the MSFR</p>\n\n<p>fuel mixture are discussed indicating departures from ideal behaviour, and further interpreted by phase</p>\n\n<p>equilibria calculations. The boiling point of the mixture is obtained extrapolating vapour pressure</p>\n\n<p>experimental results. New results on the vaporization behaviour of pure uranium tetrafluoride are</p>\n\n<p>presented, together with the ionization potentials of UF4 by electron impact.</p>",
