α-Keggin polyoxometalate, α-PW12O403− (PW), forms hybrid crystalline materials with industrial (neutral) polyethylene glycol oligomers (PEG) under mild conditions.
A new molecular approach based on molecular dynamics simulations is proposed to investigate the stability of reverse micelles containing strategic metals in organic phase.
In situ observation of the first stage of sintering of cerium dioxide microspheres performed using an environmental scanning electron microscope at high temperature (HT-ESEM).
Pure Th1−xErx(SiO4)1−x(PO4)x compounds belonging to the zircon–xenotime family were synthesized under hydrothermal conditions (250 °C, 7 days).
The facile, rapid, and complete reductive dissolution of CeO2 and ceria-based oxides, known to be highly refractive materials towards dissolution, is reported for the first time in very mild conditions.
We demonstrated that the TPO/ionic liquid system showed remarkable performances, i.e., efficiency and selectivity towards lanthanides in a simulated leaching solution of a Nd/Fe/B/Dy magnet.
We show for the first time that hard trivalent cations can be repelled or attracted by the extractant-enriched interface according to the nature of the ligand.
Première illustration de la capacité de cette technique pour sonder directement l’influence du champ cristallin sur les orbitales de valence 5f et 6d de composés d’actinides.
