Magnetite dissolution tests using a hydrazine base solution were performed at a temperature range of 90 to 150 °C. The dissolution rate of magnetite increased with [N2H4], time, and temperature. The optimum solution pH in the experimental range was 3. The addition of copper ion to the hydrazine base solution greatly increased the magnetite dissolution rate. This was explained by the complex formation between N2H4 and Cu ions, and the reducing power of the hydrazine-Cu complex to the ferric ions of magnetite. The reductive decontamination solution can be applied below 100 °C by the addition of copper ions. The chemical decontamination of a Type 304 stainless steel specimen using a hydrazine base reductive decontamination solution was also performed. The contact dose rate was greatly decreased by the repetitive application of NP and the hydrazine base solution.
