In safety assessments for licensing of LBE/Pb cooled ADS and FR, accurateprediction of retention of radionuclides by LBE/Pb is crucial. Recommended data in OECD handbook allow limited assessments only. SCK-CENs approach (MYTH model) allows global equilibrium analysis and has been very successful in several cases. But for a number critical radionuclides (e.g. polonium, iodine) the availability of fundamental data and understanding of mechanisms is still insufficient forquantitative predictions. Thermochemical (equilibrium) model needs coupling to system/CFD code Dedicated collaborative R&D programmes should be set up to fill the gaps.
