Published Berlin ; London : Springer, 2010


Description 1 online resource
Contents Actinide -- nanoparticle interaction. Generation, stability and mobility -- Section 1. Methods for actinide nanoparticle characterization: Scanning transmission electron microscopy and related techniques for research on actinide and radionuclide nanomaterials -- Resonant inelastic soft x-ray scattering spectroscopy of light-actinide materials -- Characterization of colloid borne actinides by Flow Field-Flow Fractionation (FlFFF) Multi Detector Analysis (MDA) -- Actinide nanoparticle characterization by mass spectrometry -- Synchrotron-based X-ray spectromicroscopy of organic nanoparticles complexing actinides -- Section 2. Modeling of actinide nanoparticle structure and behavior: From molecules to nano-particles -- A computational chemist's point of view -- Theoretical analysis of colloid-facilitated transport of radionuclides by groundwater -- Section 3. Interfacial phenomena and formation of actinide nanoparticles: Nanoscale chemistry of uranyl selenates -- Actinide thin films as surface models -- Sorption and speciation of uranium on silica colloids -- Section 4. Environmental behavior of actinide colloids and nanoparticles: Radioactive particles released into the environment from nuclear events -- Effect of redox conditions on actinide speciation and partitioning with colloidal matter -- X-ray absorption spectroscopy of plutonium particles at the Rocky Flats US Nuclear Weapons Production Site -- Colloid facilitated transport of plutonium at the Nevada Test Site, NV USA -- Speciation of actinides in granite subjected to tracer studies
Summary This is the first book to cover actinide nano research. It is of interest both for fundamental research into the chemistry and physics of f-block elements as well as for applied researchers such as those studying the long-term safety of nuclear waste disposal and developing remediation strategies. The authors cover important issues of the formation of actinide nano-particles, their properties and structure, environmental behavior of colloids and nanoparticles related to the safe disposal of nuclear wastes, modeling and advanced methods of characterization at the nano-scale
