The high levels observed for soluble calcium, in these soils. The increase in the total uranium levels with increasing carbonate levels is due to the complexation of uranium with carbonate species. Geochemical modeling confirms that the The determination of solubility and chemical speciation will provide vital information. the effect of phosphate on the migration of uranium in natural waters is not well understood. We have investigated the solubility of a well-characterized U(VI)-phosphate phase in the pH range 3 to 9: (U02)3(P04)2 - 4H20(s) Analysis of these data indicates the formation of the predominant species U02HP04(aq) and U02PO; in the pH range

Bacillus sphaericus JG-A12 is a natural isolate recovered from a uranium mining waste pile near the town of Johanngeorgenstadt in Saxony, Germany. The cells of this strain are enveloped by a highly ordered crystalline proteinaceous surface layer (S-layer) possessing an ability to bind uranium Cited by: Investigation of uranium redox chemistry and complexation across the pH range by cyclic voltammetry TZ (GMT) by Mei Chew The current option for the management of Intermediate-Level Waste (ILW) and High-Level Waste (HLW) in the UK is to store it in stainless steel containers and then placed in a deep underground Geological Author: Mei Chew.

dominate uranium speciation in mid- to high-pH solutions. The tendency for these uranyl complexes to remain in solu-tion has led to the common assumption that such aqueous complexation causes a high degree of uranium mobility (8, 9). Furthermore, the presumed mobility of these uranyl complexes represents the basis of proposed remediation. A lower value of the solubility product of the uranium dioxide phase defined as fuel in the SKB uranium database provides reasonable solubilities for a wide span of experimental results at near to neutral pH. Based on the modeling and using the b1,4 for the U(IV)-OH complexation given by Grenthe et al. (a), a logKs0 (UO2(s) 1 4H 1 NU41 1 2H.

Abstract. speciation and complexation at high pH This item was submitted to Loughborough University's Institutional Repository by the/an author Year: OAI identifier: oai: Uranium occurred predominantly sorbed onto phyllosilicates in the deeper vadose zone and groundwater; sorbed uranium was also an important component at intermediate depths.

Since the calcite-bearing pond sediments speciation and complexation at high pH book been removed in remediation efforts, uranium fate and transport will be controlled primarily by desorption of the sorbed uranium and dissolution of by: However, this study has demonstrated that solubility in leachate could rise at high pH and high carbonate levels, if aerobic conditions were to develop.

Soluble U(VI) species would be formed. The results presented in this work show that gluconate increases significantly the uranium solubility at pH c = 12; the study of U(VI) speciation in alkaline solutions is complex, mainly due to formation of sparingly soluble uranates of varying compositions (e.g.

Afzal, Riaz Qadeer, Javed by: At high pH, low uranium adsorption is attributed to increasing carbonate concentrations, leading to weakly sorbing or non-sorbing aqueous U(VI)-carbonate complexes (Hsi and Langmuir,Waite et al.,Davis et al., ).Cited by: orthorhombic, tetragonal and in body-centered cubic ones [28].

Uranium exhibits a high melting point ( C) and it is one of the heaviest naturally occurring elements. The density of uranium ( g cm−3) is 65% higher than that of lead [12, 14].

The data help to revise the speciation of uranium(VI) species under seawater conditions. may occur through the formation of uranium mineral phases. The high pH conditions of grout material, pH ~12, limits the solubility of uranium by forming uranyl-oxides, -hydroxides and uranate salts (Serne et al.

Speciation of uranium in environmental relevant compartments* Gert Bernhard1 Abstract In the past, the chemistry of uranium was focused on its mining and milling for production of high pure uranium compounds as initial matter of reactor fuel elements for energy production and breeding of plutonium for weapons production.

Uranium solubility is also reduced in the presence of dissolved V by complexation with vanadate to form the very low solubility mineral carnotite, which is often found as a cementing phase in uraniferous sandstone. In most natural water U is present at concentrations between and 10 µg l-1 (Hem ), although concentrationsFile Size: KB.
