This study aims to show the stability of c-MnO2/Ag2O hydrogen getter under gamma irradiation in order to be suitable for decreasing the hydrogen risk during the nuclear waste transportation. The chemical and the structural properties of the getter were barely unchanged for irradiated doses up to 4 MGy. The pair distribution function (PDF) analysis showed that the c-MnO2, which can be describe as an intergrowth of the ramsdellite phase (R-MnO2) and the pyrolusite phase (beta-MnO2), had the same intergrowth rate (around 60\% for beta-MnO2 and 40\% for R-MnO2) after irradiation and the silver containing promoter was also unchanged. The getter remains therefore efficient for hydrogen trapping. Furthermore, c-MnO2/Ag2O was tested in a closed environment in the presence of hydrogen released by organic technological waste radiolysis, such as polyvinyl chloride, ion exchange resins, polyethylene and silicone. Over 80\% of the hydrogen, generated by organic radiolysis, was trapped under a 1.5 MGy gamma irradiation. (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
