• Sodium Titanates for Separations, Catalysis and Biomedical Applications

      Hobbs, David T.; Savannah River National Library (2016-04-15)
      Sodium titanates are a class of inorganic materials having chemical and surface properties that can be exploited for numerous applications. For example, sodium titanates have proved very effective in removing certain radioactive contaminants from high-level nuclear waste solutions at the Savannah River Site and contaminated waters at the Fukushima site in Japan. This presentation will follow the development of the titanate materials for radiochemical separations as well as our more recent studies into the synthesis of materials for use as photocatalysts and in biomedical applications.
