Two types of uranium minerals (silicates and molybdates) have been synthesized for modeling experiments in order to research the dynamics of uranium and its fission products in the geochemical environment. The attention has been paid to soddyite, Na-boltwoodite, cesium uranyl oxonium silicate hydrate and cesium uranyl molybdenum oxide, which typically form under natural conditions and during temporary storage of spent nuclear fuel. The synthesized minerals have been characterized and the conditions under which they form have been determined.
