Redox Behavior of Uranium at the Nanoporous Aluminum Oxide-Water Interface: Implications for Uranium Remediation

The Fukushima disaster has actualized again the questions dealing with chemical interactions between the products of radioactive decay and silica and alumina based mineral and, of course, purposely produced sol-gel matrices. In Environmental Science and Technology 2012.


Huifang Xu and colleagues describe Redox behavior of uranium at the nanoporous aluminum oxide-water interface and its implications for uranium remediation.
