Based on simulations during the correction of the pH possible solid phases formed include Fe(OH)3, [Fe.sub.3](OH)8, goethite (FeOOH), hematite and maghemite ([Fe.sub.2][O.sub.3]), magnetite ([Fe.sub.3][O.sub.4]), gibbsite (Al(OH)3), basaluminite [([Al.sub.4](OH).sub.10]S[O.sub.4]),boehmite and diaspore (AlOOH), jurbanite (AlOHS[O.sub.4]), U[O.sub.2][(OH).sub.2] and schoepite (U[O.sub.2][(OH).sub.2]*[H.sub.2]O), hausmannite, manganite, and pyrolusite.
A series of tests were done to determine the incorporation of [Ce.sup.4+] and [Nd.sup.3+] (surrogates for [Pu.sup.4+] and [Am.sup.3+] respectively) into dehydrated schoepite ([UO.sub.3].0.8-l.[0H.sub.2]O).
Gilbert also had a remarkable specimen of a very rare and doubly terminated roubaultite crystal (3+ mm) with schoepite from the K.O.V.
