Thermodynamic interpretation of uranium(IV/VI) solubility in the presence of $$alpha$$-isosaccharinic acid

Kobayashi, Taishi*; Sasaki, Takayuki*; Kitamura, Akira

The effect of $$alpha$$-isosaccharinic acid (ISA) on the solubility and redox of tetravalent and hexavalent uranium (U(IV), U(VI)) was investigated in the hydrogen ion concentration (pH$$_{c}$$) range of 6$$sim$$13 and at total ISA concentration ([ISA]$$_{rm tot}$$) = 10$$^{-4}$$$$sim$$10$$^{-1.2}$$ mol/dm$$^{3}$$. The dependence of U(IV) solubility on pH$$_{c}$$ and [ISA]$$_{rm tot}$$ suggested the existence of U(OH)$$_{4}$$(ISA)$$_{2}$$$$^{2-}$$ as a dominant species within the investigated pH$$_{c}$$ range of 6$$sim$$12. For the U(VI)-ISA system, UO$$_{2}$$(OH)$$_{3}$$(ISA)$$_{2}$$$$^{2-}$$ was suggested as a dominant species at pH$$_{c}$$ 7$$sim$$13. The formation constants of the U(IV)-ISA and U(VI)-ISA complexes were determined by least-squares fitting of the solubility data. The solubility of U(IV) and U(VI) in the presence of ISA and its effect on the redox behavior were thermodynamically interpreted based on the obtained constants.

Thermodynamic study of the complexation of humic acid by calorimetry

A combination of potentiometry and calorimetry was used for the determination of the thermodynamic quantities of complexation of generic and groundwater humic acid (HA), which was isolated from deep groundwater at Horonobe, Hokkaido, Japan, with copper (II) ions and uranyl (VI) ions. The apparent complexation constant of Horonobe HA was independent of the pH, whereas that of generic HA was dependent on the pH. This observation indicates that the polyelectrolyte effect of Horonobe HA is negligible because of its small molecular size. In addition, the effect of the heterogeneity of Horonobe HA was not significant. Moreover, the complexation enthalpy of Horonobe HA was consistent with that of homogeneous poly(acrylic acid), which means the complexation of Horonobe HA was not affected by the functional group heterogeneity. Consequently, the characteristic complexation mechanism of Horonobe HA was revealed based on the determined thermodynamic quantities.

Thermodynamic equilibrium constants for important isosaccharinate reactions; A Review

Rai, D.*; Kitamura, Akira

Journal of Chemical Thermodynamics, 114, p.135 - 143, 2017/11

 Times Cited Count:4 Percentile:14.51(Thermodynamics)

Isosaccharinic acid is a cellulose degradation product that can form in low-level nuclear waste repositories and is known to form strong complexes with many elements, including actinides, disposed of in these repositories. We (1) reviewed the available data for deprotonation and lactonisation constants of isosaccharinic acid, and the isosaccharinate binding constants for Ca, Fe(III), Th, U(IV), U(VI), Np(IV), Pu(IV), and Am(III), (2) summarized complexation constant values for predicting actinide behavior in geologic repositories in the presence of isosaccharinate, and (3) outlined additional studies to acquire reliable thermodynamic data where the available data are inadequate.

Standard Gibbs free energies for transfer of actinyl ions at the aqueous/organic solution interface

Kitatsuji, Yoshihiro; Okugaki, Tomohiko*; Kasuno, Megumi*; Kubota, Hiroki*; Maeda, Koji*; Kimura, Takaumi; Yoshida, Zenko; Kihara, Sorin*

Standard Gibbs energies for transfer ($$Delta$$G$$_{tr}$$$$^{0}$$) of actinyl ions (AnO$$_{2}$$$$^{z+}$$; z = 2 or 1; An: U, Np or Pu) between an aqueous solution and an organic solution were determined based on distribution method combined with voltammetry for ion transfer at the interface of two immiscible electrolyte solutions. The organic solutions examined were nitrobenzene, 1,2-dichloroethane, benzonitrile, acetophenone and 2-nitrophenyl octyl ether. Irrespective of the type of organic solutions, $$Delta$$G$$_{tr}$$$$^{0}$$ of UO$$_{2}$$$$^{2+}$$, NpO$$_{2}$$$$^{2+}$$ and PuO$$_{2}$$$$^{2+}$$ were nearly equal to each other and slightly larger than that of Mg$$^{2+}$$. The $$Delta$$G$$_{tr}$$$$^{0}$$ of NpO$$_{2}$$$$^{+}$$ was extraordinary large compared with those of ordinary monovalent cations. The dependence of $$Delta$$G$$_{tr}$$$$^{0}$$ of AnO$$_{2}$$$$^{z+}$$ on the type of organic solutions was similar to that of H$$^{+}$$ or Mg$$^{2+}$$. The $$Delta$$G$$_{tr}$$$$^{0}$$ of An$$^{3+}$$ and An$$^{4+}$$ were also discussed briefly.
