Plutonium/IV/ compounds obtained in the reactions with phenylacetic acid and α-naphthyl acetic acid in the pH range of 3.5–5.0 have been isolated and studied. Carbon, hydrogen and plutonium analyses have shown that plutonium/IV/ phenyl acetate and plutonium/IV/ α-naphthyl acetate have the composition Pu/OH/3/C10H7CH2COO/, respectively. Infra-red and ultra-violet absorption spectral studies and thermogravimetric analysis have corroborated these chemical formulas.
