Abstract

Aqueous/solid distribution coefficients have been measured for 137Cs, 85Sr, 99Tc, 152Eu, 144Ce, 238Pu, 243Am and 244Cm on powdered argillite and hornfels obtained from the Nevada Test Site. The fluid phases included a groundwater simulant and deionized water preequilibrated with powdered argillite. Distribution coefficients for lanthanides and actinides are generally high, and Eleana shale was found to effectively sorb technetium.
