Thermal Stability of newberyite Mg(PO3OH)·3H2O

A cave mineral from Skipton Lava Tubes, Victoria, Australia

Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry
Authors: Ray L. Frost, Sara J. Palmer and Ross E. Pogson

Introduction The mineral newberyite Mg(PO 3 OH)·3H 2 O is a mineral that has been found in Australian caves such as the Skipton Lava Tubes and the Petrogale Cave. However, newberyite has been found in many sites worldwide [ 1

Abstract  

A method for determining210Po in marine samples by wet dissolution, deposition onto silver disc and counting by -spectrometry is described. Recovery of polonium was obtained with208Po tracer.210Po levels in fish from the Brazilian coast and sediments from Antarctic region were determined. Levels in fish ranged from 0.5 to 5.3 Bq·kg–1 wet and for sediments, mean values of 10 mBq·kg–1 were obtained.

Abstract  

A method for isolation and electroplating of210Po is described. Natural samples of autunite, after pretreatment, were dissolved in dilute hydrochloric acid and the solution was passed through a chromatographic partition column with di (2-ethylhexyl) phosphoric acid as stationary phase. Uranium and its daughters were strongly retained in the column. The210Po fraction was eluted with citric acid solution, then evaporated almost to dryness. Next, electroplating was carried out for 18 h, at 5–10 mA current, using an electrolyte bath of oxalic acid solution. The yield of recovery of radiochemically pure210Po was about 95% of the initial210Po activity.

Thermal stability of stercorite H(NH4)Na(PO4)·4H2O

A cave mineral from Petrogale Cave, Madura, Eucla, Western Australia

Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry
Authors: Ray L. Frost and Sara J. Palmer

Introduction The mineral stercorite originated from the Petrogale Cave, Madura, Eucla, Western Australia. Many minerals may form in these caves, some of which include archerite (K, NH 4 )(H 2 PO 4 ) [ 1 ], and mundrabillaite
