Title

Analytical Electron Microscopy Study of Colloids from Nuclear Waste Glass Reaction

Abstract

An Analytical Electron Microscopy study of colloidal particles formed during reaction of waste glass has been performed. The effect of waste glass test parameters on colloid formation is examined. Characterization of phases present in the leachate of these tests has shown that layers spalled from the glass and precipitated phases are both sources of colloids in the leachate. Elements, such as uranium, have been found to concentrate within colloidal particles in the leachate.
