Abstract

New sodium and zinc insertion compounds of the uranium oxides UO2.95(alpha-UO3) and UO2.67(alpha-U3O8), were synthesized at ambient temperature. Enthalpies of formation were measured calorimetrically and corresponding free energies of formation were determined electrochemically. Electronic changes on insertion were monitored by measurements of magnetic susceptibilities.
