XAFS analysis of ruthenium in simulated iron phosphate radioactive waste glass

Okamoto, Yoshihiro ; Kobayashi, Hidekazu ; Shiwaku, Hideaki  ; Sasage, Kenichi; Hatakeyama, Kiyoshi*; Nagai, Takayuki 

The chemical state of ruthenium in simulated iron phosphate radioactive waste glass was investigated by conventional X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) and imaging XAFS analyses. The EXAFS analysis suggested that ruthenium was contained as glass phase when content of the waste components was less than 10wt.% in 30 mol%Fe$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$-P$$_{2}$$O$$_{5}$$ base glass. In other samples, crystalline RuO$$_{2}$$ was predominant. According to the imaging XAFS analysis, RuO$$_{2}$$ particles in all samples had length smaller than 50$$mu$$m. Aggregations of RuO$$_{2}$$, which are found in nuclear waste borosilicate glass, were not seen in any of the iron phosphate glass samples.
