Optimization of the Electrochemical Pre-Concentration of f-Elements
Rapid pre-concentration of trace lanthanide cations in aqueous solution has been achieved using mercury film electrodes. Although effective, this technique has shown minimal sample carryover when used to pre-concentrate ...
COORDINATION CHEMISTRY OF f-ELEMENTS IN THE TALSPEAK PROCESS
A key step in the advancement of the nuclear fuel cycle in the U.S. is transmutation of the long-lived activation product actinides (Am3+ and Cm3+). Transmutation is viable once the minor actinides Am3+ and Cm3+ have been ...
The Application of Electrospray Mass Spectrometry to Solution Speciation: An Integrated Experimental and Computational Approach
Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) is a promising technique for the study of metal:ligand solution speciation. While ESI-MS is frequently used qualitatively with some success, quantitative use of the technique ...

ASSESSING MEDIUM EFFECTS IN TALSPEAK-LIKE SYSTEMS VIA CALORIMETRIC ENTROPY TITRATIONS
This study investigated the application of calorimetric entropy titrations to the light lanthanides in TALSPEAK-like systems. Since TALSPEAK operates in an unusual ionic medium, this work was expanded to probe medium effects ...
