Electrodeposition of uranium and thorium

  • Y. A. Elewady


Cathodic depositions of uranium and thorium were carried out from a number of baths containing the metal salts, and complexing agents. A reducing agent was also present to prevent oxidation of the element. The deposition was also carried out at controlled pH. The current density ranged from 50 to 200 mA cm−2. The purity of the deposited metals was better than 99.7%. The mechanism of formation of uranium and thorium is proposed and discussed.
