Abstract

IN connexion with earlier investigations on uranium oxides in this Institute, it was observed that uranium dioxide (UO2) can react with oxygen at so low a temperature as 120° C. To obtain more exact information about this low-temperature oxidation of UO2, the oxide was heated in purified oxygen at different temperatures from 100° to 265° C. and the reaction products examined by the X-ray powder method1.
