    Abstract:

    Two high nuclearity uranyl cages were crystallized in high yield under mild solvothermal conditions using rigid aryl phosphonate ligands. These compounds are prepared either through an in situ phosphonate ligand condensation reaction or via serendipitous assembly with a bulky phosphonate ligand. Firstly, the flexibility of the phosphonate ligands enhances the curvature of the uranyl polyhedra in the assembly of both compounds. Secondly, the formation of bent pyrophosphonate ligands through te…

    Abstract:

    The behaviours of two uranyl peroxide nanoclusters in water heated to 180 °C were examined by in situ Raman spectroscopy. Aqueous solutions containing the nanoscale uranyl peroxide cage clusters U 60 , [(UO 2 )(O 2 )(OH)] 60 60− , and U 60 Ox 30 , [{(UO 2 )(O 2 )} 60 (C 2 O 4 ) 30 ] 60− , were monitored by in situ Raman spectroscopy during stepwise heating to 180 °C. In solutions containing U 60 , clusters persist to 120 °C, although conversion of U 60 to U 24 , [(UO 2 )(O 2 )(OH)] 24 24− , o…

    Abstract:

    The dissolution behavior of uranyl peroxide studtite, (UO2)(O2)(H2O)22, was examined under a wide range of alkaline aqueous environments with and without the addition of hydrogen peroxide. In the absence of added H2O2, studtite dissolved in aqueous solutions with a tetraethylammonium hydroxide to uranium molar ratio greater than 0.5, and the resulting species in solution characterized by Raman spectroscopy and electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) is the uranyl peroxide na…
