They found that the Zn cation can act both as network modifier and network glass former.
As MgO [greater than or equal to] 20 mol%, some of the Mg ions enter the network as glass former in addition to their role as glass modifier.
The ICV[TM] is ideal for tank, mixed, debris-laden or pre-containerized waste streams where temperature, glass former and process flexibility is important to address waste streams with varying and/or challenging chemistries and densities.
In this work, we have shown that the incorporation of MMT leads to decrease the amount of vitreous phase able to relax at the glass transition, accelerate the kinetics of relaxation of this vitreous phase, make stronger the liquid glass former and do not modify the [beta]-relaxation.
This research focused on testing higher wastes loading of Sludge Batch 2 (SB2) simulant using Frit 320, a newly developed glass former.
Where the ICV approach has strengths in debris-laden or pre-containerized waste, the MVS is ideal for liquid and tank wastes where temperature, glass former and process flexibility is important to address waste streams with varying and/or challenging chemistries and densities.
Using its patented MVS[R] technology, Kurion studied how the uranium metal bearing sludge, soon to be retrieved from the basins by CHPRC, could be mixed with glass formers and treated at elevated temperatures to encapsulate and immobilize the sludge in a glass matrix.
I anticipate utilizing the SiCortex system to complete parallel calculations that explore the energy landscapes of atomic and molecular clusters, biomolecules and glass formers," said Professor David Wales, the principal researcher who will be interfacing with the SiCortex system in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge.
