Epr of Fe3+ and Cr3+ Ions in NZP Ceramics

  • A. Y. Troole (a1), S. V. Stefanovsky (a1) and L. D. Bogomolova (a2)


A new method to estimate the thermodynamic stability of crystalline host phases for radwaste is based on the determination of the degree of coordination polyhedra distortion. Analysis of the stability of sodium zirconium phosphate (NZP) structure containing Fe and Cr has been completed. The NZP structure can incorporate a limited amount of iron (∼2 mol. % Fe2o3). From the EPR study, Fe3+ and Cr3+ ions occupy two different structural positions substituting for Zr4+and Na+. Moreover, these ions can enter extra phases.
