XAS methods in understanding chemical processes relevant to nuclear waste disposal

A literature review

Ulla Vuorinen, Torbjörn Carlsson

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

A limited literature survey is presented. The purpose is not to explore all the possibilities of the technique of X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) methods but to illustrate, with a few examples, the contribution it can make to understanding element speciation and chemical processes involved in the radionuclide migration in the environment. The emphasis is research related to radionuclide behaviour in the context of safe disposal of nuclear waste. The report contains suggestions for the application of XAS methods to chemical systems relevant to Finnish repository conditions. Appropriate experiments are briefly outlined.
