H is for HEU Around 1,000 kilograms of low-enriched uranium (LEU) are needed to make enough highly enriched uranium (HEU) for one bomb, if further processed. Iran currently has some 8,000 kg of LEU.U is for UF6 Uranium hexafloride, the gaseous form of uranium for enrichment.Y is for Yellowcake Processed uranium ore, then converted into uranium tetrafluoride and uranium hexafloride (see above).
