Abstract

The hydrolysis and chemical speciation of the dioxouranium(VI) ion at 25 jC was studied in a number of binary electrolytes (LiCl, NaCl, MgCl2, CaCl2, Na2SO4) and some mixtures (NaCl–Na2SO4, NaNO3–Na2SO4, CaCl2–MgCl2) as well as artificial seawater (SSWE) as a function of ionic strength. The results in LiCl, CaCl2 and MgCl2 solutions confirmed the formation of (UO2)2(OH)22 +, (UO2)3(OH)42 +, (UO2)3(OH)5+ and (UO2)3(OH)7- species (at I = 0 mol l- 1: log beta22 =-5.76, logbeta34 =-11.82, log beta35 =-15.89 and log beta37 =-29.26). For NaNO3, NaCl and artificial seawater the hydrolysis constant for the formation of the UO2(OH)+ species was also determined (at I = 0 mol l-1: log beta11 =-5.19). The results in Na2SO4, Na2SO4/NaNO3 and Na2SO4/NaCl required the formation of UO2(SO4)0, UO2(SO4)22-, UO2(OH)SO4- , (UO2)2(OH)2SO40, (UO2)3(OH)4SO40 and (UO2)3(OH)5SO4- , whose estimated values of each complex formation constant at I = 0 mol (kg H2O)- 1 are (log betapqr standard deviation, species in parenthesis): 3.32F0.02 [UO2SO4 0], 4.26F0.04 [UO2(SO4)22-], 2.30F0.01 [UO2(OH)(SO4)-], 2.64F0.04 [(UO2)2(OH)2(SO4)0], 8.45F0.04 [(UO2)3(OH)4(SO4)0], 13.58F 0.04 [(UO2)3(OH)5(SO4) ]. All the results were examined using the Pitzer model by considering the interactions of the cation hydrolytic species with Cl- and NO3- and anion hydrolytic species with Li+, Na+ , Ca2 + and Mg2 + and, in addition, the ‘‘same sign’’ and ‘‘triple’’ interaction parameters. The resulting Pitzer parameters give an adequate representation of all the hydrolysis constants measured in the binary, ternary and artificial seawater solutions. Alternatively to the interpretation of the dependence of uranyl hydrolysis constants on ionic strength and on ionic medium in terms of variations of activity coefficients of ions, the formation of ion pairs was considered and some complex formation constants among dioxouranium(VI) species and different ions of background salts were calculated.
