Cesium: Properties, Production and Applications


Brandt Hall (Editor)

Series: Chemistry Research and Applications
BISAC: SCI013000

In the first chapter, Tatiana P. Pogrebnaya, Stanley F. Mwanga, and Alexander M. Pogrebnoi present a study where a diversity of molecular and ionic clusters of cesium halides was emphasized; structure and stability of the species were determined. In the second chapter, a variety of cesium corrosion tests were performed on the FBR fuel cladding materials to explore the corrosion behavior on FBR cladding materials. In the third chapter, present a study finding that salmonids are effective monitoring animals concerning contamination of the marine ecosystems. In the final chapter, Dylan J. Sures and May Nyman present an overview of existing radiocesium sequestration techniques along with a perspective on cesium in polyoxometalate model systems. (Imprint: Nova)
