The precipitation behaviour of basic plutonium(IV) compounds from dilute nitric acid medium with aliphatic dicarboxylic acids has been investigated. Unlike plutonium(IV) oxalate, which is precipitated in acid medium (1–4M), the higher dicarboxylates precipitate in 0.9–2.5 pH range and their elemental analysis indicate Pu/dicarboxylate ratio of 11. The mode of formation, composition, solubility and thermal degradation behaviour for plutonium(IV) hydroxosuccinate has been studied. The hydroxy group determination by kinetic titration using fluoride complexing revealed that the compound has a Pu:OH ratio of 11 and determination of bridging oxygen group gave a Pu:O ratio of 10.5 suggest its formation as hydroxysuccinate having an oxobridged formula.
The study was undertaken to evaluate the feasibility of functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) for the removal
of UO22+ from aqueous solutions. The MWCNTs was treated by oxygen plasma and characterized by FTIR and XPS. The characterization indicates
that MWCNTs is successfully functionalized of oxygen groups such as –COOH on its surface (denote as P-MWCNTs). The sorption
of UO22+ from aqueous solution on P-MWCNTs was studied as a function of contact time, solid contents, pH, ionic strength and temperature
under ambient conditions using batch experiment. Two simplified kinetic models of pseudo-first-order and pseudo-second-order
were tested to determine kinetic parameters such as rate constants, equilibrium sorption capacities and related correlation
coefficients for kinetic models of the sorption process. It can be seen that the UO22+ sorption on P-MWCNTs could be described more favorably by the pseudo-second-order model. The thermodynamic parameters (∆G°, ∆S°, ∆H°) calculated from the temperature-dependent sorption isotherms indicated that the sorption of UO22+ on P-MWCNTs were an endothermic and spontaneous processes. The results of the present study suggest that P-MWCNTs can be
used beneficially in treating industrial effluents containing radioactive and heavy metal ions.

The result reveals that antimicrobial activity these polyesters are due to the presence of nitrogen and oxygengroups. It has been suggested that the compound with N
