Abstract: Bismuth–lithium alloys are considered as primary candidates for the reductive extraction step of on-line reprocessing of a molten salt reactor fuel. The corrosion behavior of pure metals and nickel-based alloys was studied in a liquid Bi–Li (5 mol.%) alloy at 650 °C. The tantalum, molybdenum, and corrosion-resistant alloys VDM® Alloy C-4, Hastelloy® G-35®, KhN62M, VDM® Alloy 59 were studied as prospective materials for this liquid metal media. The corrosion rates were determined by gravimetric method as well as chemical analysis of corrosion products in Bi–Li alloy. Microstructure and chemical composition of samples of the materials and Bi–Li alloys containing the corrosion products after the tests were evaluated using inductively coupled plasma–atomic emission spectroscopy, X-ray fluorescence analysis, scanning electron microscopy, and energy dispersive spectroscopy. Metallic tantalum and molybdenum do not chemically interact with liquid Bi–Li alloy; the corrosion rate of these metals is determined only by the solubility in this medium. The corrosion rates of Ta and Mo at 650 °C were 0.09 and 0.07 mm/year, respectively. Nickel alloys are subjected to severe corrosion in liquid Bi–Li alloys due to dissolution of nickel in liquid bismuth. Alloys of this type cannot be used in such an environment. © 2021 by the authors. Licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.
