Diffusion and Retention of surface complexing radionuclides in compacted clay minerals

Start date: 01/03/2020
End date: 01/03/2023
University: University of Bern
Promotor: Sergey Chukarov

Research performed by Dimitra ZERVA.

In the frame of this project Dimitra aims to obtain a better understanding of the surface diffusion effects of strongly sorbing radionuclides such as Nickel and Cobalt in illite. To this end she will use two types of illite (homoionic Na Illite and the K illite) to extract information and to compare their Electrical Double Layer effect.
