XAFS study of molten ZrCl$$_4$$ in LiCl-KCl eutectic

Okamoto, Yoshihiro ; Motohashi, Haruhiko*

The local structure of molten ZrCl$$_4$$ in LiCl-KCl eutectic was investigated by using an X-ray absorption fine structure(XAFS) of the Zr K-absorption edge. The nearest Zr$$^{4+}$$-Cl$$^-$$ distance and coordination number from the curve fitting analysis were 2.51$$pm0.02AA$$ and 5.8$$pm$$0.6, respectively. These suggest that a 6-fold coordination (ZrCl$$_6$$)$$^{2-}$$ is predominant in the mixture melt.
