弱酸性溶液中でのU(VI)の電解還元過程を電気化学的、及び分光学的手法を用いて調べた。金マイクロ電極を用いてボルタンメトリー測定したところ、pH2.0から3.5の溶液中で、U(VI)からU(V)への可逆な一電子還元波と、U(V)の非可逆な還元波を観測した。金網電極を用いて、U(VI)からU(V)への還元が生じる電位で定電位差電解を行ったところ、U(IV)の凝集体が電極上及び溶液中に形成された。この凝集体は電解還元されたU(V)の不均化反応により生成すること、凝集体の生成により不均化反応速度が増大することを明らかにした。この反応により、U(VI)の定電位差電解は、電解の途中で急激に電流が増加する特異な挙動を示すことになる。電解により溶液中に形成されるU(IV)の凝集体をX線回折により分析したところ、結晶性の悪いUO$$_{2}$$であった。

Reduction processes of U(VI) in weakly acidic solutions were investigated based on electrochemical and spectrophotometric measurements. A reversible one-electron reduction of U(VI) to U(V) and a further irreversible reduction of U(V) were observed voltammetrically at a gold microdisk electrode in solutions of pH from 2.0 to 3.5. Aggregates of U(IV) were formed as a deposit on the electrode and a colloid in the bulk solution, when the electrolysis was carried out at a gold gauze electrode, even though the potential applied was that available for the first one-electron reduction wave of U(VI) observed. It was elucidated that the aggregate was produced by the combination of the one-electron reduction to U(V) and the disproportionation of U(V) producing U(IV) and U(VI). The aggregate enhanced the rate of the disproportionation of U(V), and hence the reduction current of U(VI) increased abruptly when a definite amount of aggregate was formed on the electrode, in the solution, or both.
