    Thorium fuel is a bit harder to prepare. Thorium dioxide melts at 550 degrees higher temperatures than traditional Uranium dioxide so very high temperatures are required to produce high-quality solid fuel. Additionally Th is quite inert making it difficult to chemically process. This is irrelevant for fluid-fueled reactors discussed below
