solid phase transformations in the Hanford sediments treated with Al-rich, hyperalkaline and saline

EMSL Project ID



Uncontaminated Hanford sediments were treated with Al-rich, hyperalkaline and
saline solution under O2 free conditions. The objective was to study the solid
phase transformation, i.e., dissolution and precipitation, under such extreme
conditions. SEM and TEM analysis are necessary to provide evidence that these
processes are occurring in the sediments.
