- Uranium can be extracted from seawater simply and effectively using a new material
- Adding neodymium to layered double hydroxides (LDHs) improved their ability to capture uranium selectively
- Multiple techniques at ANSTO clarified the octahedral coordination environment, oxidation state and adsorption mechanism
An Australian-led international research team, including a core group of ANSTO scientists, has found that doping a promising material provides a simple, effective method capable of extracting uranium from seawater.
The research, published in Energy Advances and featured on the cover, could help in designing new materials that are highly selective for uranium, efficient, and cost-effective.
