Characterization of Uranium in Contaminated Soil from Port Hope, Ontario, Canada

Characterization of Uranium in Contaminated Soil from Port Hope, Ontario, Canada

Strategies for remediation of soil contaminated with uranium take into account environmental fate, bioavailability and toxicity of uranium, which depend to a large extent on its solubility in water. In general, uranium (IV) is considerably less soluble in water than uranium (VI). When trapped in certain minerals, uranium is less accessible to water, thus more difficult to leach. In this study we developed a method to separate and quantify uranium (IV) and (VI) species by ion chromatography coupled with the inductive coupled plasma mass spectrometry.
