The chemistry of the Uranyl Moiety
Walshe, Aurora
THESIS 10519 Uranium has had a "Jekyll and Hyde" reputation for many years, stemming from its ability to both create clean and cheap energy and from its ability to create powerful and dangerous weapons. This Thesis examines the chemistry of uranium(Vl) in the form of uranyl, [UO2]2+. Chapter 1 will introduce the chemistry of the fblock, uranium, uranyl, the known activity of uranium in its +3 to +6 oxidation states and uranium in the nuclear industry. In nature uranium preferentially exists as uranyl and will most often form minerals that can affect the solubility and mobility of uranium in the environment.
