Nitride fuel with the composition (Pu$$_{0.4}$$Zr$$_{0.6}$$)N is fabricated for studying the sinterability of nitride fuel as a function of oxygen concentration in the material. Oxygen concentration of up to 0.6 wt% evidently enhances the densification of the material. Increasing the sintering temperature from 1923 to 1973 K improves the sintered pellet densities by up to 3.8%TD. In addition, the measured thermophysical and electrical properties of (Pu$$_{0.4}$$Zr$$_{0.6}$$)N reveal that the values are close to those of PuN. Oxygen concentration of 0.34 wt% in (Pu,Zr)N is a consequence of the fabrication process, considering the relatively pure ZrN (0.03 wt% O) and PuN (0.08 wt% O) powders initially fabricated.
