Encapsulating uranium in carbon nanoparticles using a new technique

Abstract:

It has often been suggested that fullerenes or fullerene-related nanoparticles might be used for the encapsulation of radioactive materials. If the resulting nanocapsules were shown to be stable, this might provide a new method of nuclear waste disposal. Alternatively, radioisotopes encapsulated in carbon nanoparticles might be useful as tracers or in nuclear medicine. These possibilities have led a number of groups to experiment with the encapsulation of various radioactive atoms inside full...
