Abstract

Boltwoodite has been synthesized at 185 degrees C (1.3 MPa) from quartz, KCl and uranyl nitrate by a new method avoiding local supersaturation of silicate species in solution. Sodium boltwoodite, uranophane, sklodowskite and kasolite were synthesized from boltwoodite. Unit-cell parameters and space groups were determined from XRD powder data. The IR spectra have intense absorption at 3458 and 3377 cm (super -1) , corresponding with OH-stretching vibrations; bands at 1384 cm (super -1) indicate the presence of SiO (sub 3) OH groups in the structures. Luminescence spectra and solubility data are also reported.
