Series: Solubility Data Series

To compile and critically evaluate the solubility data for actinide-carbon compounds in aqueous and nonaqueous solutions.


The project covers solubility data of the carbonates, salts of carboxylic acids, and other carbon containing compounds of actinides. Covered are compounds of thorium, uranium, neptunium, plutonium, americium, and one system for curium. No solubility data on carbonates or other carbon containing compounds have been found for other actinide elements. The literature has been covered up to the end of 1999, and there was a great effort to have the literature survey as complete as possible. Only those published results that report meaningful data were considered. Papers that reported qualitative results with statements like “sparingly soluble” or “insoluble”, etc. were not considered. In addition to papers that published numerical data, some papers that presented data in graphical form only were considered as well. They were considered for the volume either if no other data were available for the system, if the data were published in difficult to obtain older literature, or if the data were considered to be of importance for other reasons.
