      Abstract: Abstract This paper considers various matrices that are able to incorporate components of radioactive wastes (RAW) of different origin. It is noted that attempts to develop the single phase crystalline matrix to immobilize all RAW components failed. The only single phase matrix brought to the industrial application is glass, which is able to accumulate practically all RAW components but in limited concentrations. Prospects are related with some types of ceramics for immobilization of narrow fractions of RAW or individual radionuclides (for instance, minor actinides), as well as some types of low-temperature matrices (iron-phosphate, magnesium–potassium–phosphate, and geopolymers). Approaches to choosing the technology of waste form synthesis are considered. Perspectives of application of both high-temperature (cold-crucible induction melting, self-propagating high-temperature synthesis) methods and modified cementation technologies are demonstrated. It is noted that the final isolation of RAW from the biosphere suggests their disposal in underground repositories. The most difficult technical problem is the disposal of RAW containing long-lived radionuclides. It is shown that the quantitative assessment of repository safety with allowance for their characteristics and all possible processes and phenomena is required to substantiate the safe disposal of long-lived radionuclides.

  • Nuclear fuel cycle and its impact on the environment
    • Authors: B. F. Myasoedov; S. N. Kalmykov; Yu. M. Kulyako; S. E. Vinokurov
      Pages: 1156 - 1167
      Abstract: Abstract In this paper, we consider the present-day situation and outlooks of the development of nuclear power generation in Russia and other countries. It was noted that the implementation of the concept of a closed nuclear-fuel cycle accepted in Russia relies on the solution of the problem of the disposal of spent nuclear fuel (SNF) and radioactive waste (RAW). This paper presents the main results of investigations focused on the development of radiation-safe methods of manufacturing nuclear fuel elements, including mixed uranium–plutonium oxide fuel for fast-neutron reactors; creation of low waste-production technologies of SNF processing and RAW disposal; and the analysis of fundamental features of the behavior and speciation of radionuclides in environmental objects for the development of efficient methods of radioecological monitoring and remediation of radionuclide-contaminated areas.

  • Digital gamma activation autoradiography: A method for the study of
           inclusions and mineralogical texture of large size geological polished
           thin sections
    • Authors: V. P. Kolotov; D. S. Grozdov; N. N. Dogadkin
      Pages: 1168 - 1174
      Abstract: Abstract The nuclear analytical method of element mapping in large-sized (several dozen cm2) polished sections of geological samples was worked out. The method includes activation of the sample by bremstrahlung of an electron accelerator using a developed device for uniform sample irradiation. The next step is to obtain a series of digital autoradiograms, which is processed by the program for estimation of the decay dynamics of induced radioactivity for each pixel of the image. The data obtained are converted into a series of metaimages characterizing the distribution of induced radionuclides (measured elements) over the surface of polished thin sections. The results of mapping are in a good agreement with the data of scanning electron microscopy. The developed method is suggested for screening detection of element distribution including distinguishing of the sample zones containing PGE inclusions.

  • Application of IR and Raman spectroscopy for the determination of the role
           of oxygen fugacity in the formation of N–С–О–Н molecules and
           complexes in the iron-bearing silicate melts at high pressures
    • Authors: A. A. Kadik; V. V. Koltashev; E. B. Kryukova; T. I. Tsekhonya; V. G. Plotnichenko
      Pages: 1175 - 1186
      Abstract: Abstract Large-scale melting of the Earth’s early mantle under the effect of global impact processes was accompanied by the generation of volatiles, which concentration was mainly controlled by the interaction of main N, C, O, and H gas-forming elements with silicate and metallic melts at low oxygen fugacity (fO2), which predominated during metallic segregation and self-oxidation of magma ocean. The paper considers the application of Raman and IR (infrared) Fourier spectroscopy for revealing the mechanisms of simultaneous dissolution and relative contents of N, C, O, and H in glasses, which represent the quench products of reduced model FeO–Na2O–Al2O3–SiO2 melts after experiments at 4 GPa, 1550°C, and fO2 1.5–3 orders of magnitude below the oxygen fugacity of the iron—wustite buffer equilibrium (fO2(IW)). Such fO2 values correspond to those inferred for the origin and evolution of magma ocean. It was established that the silicate melt contains complexes with N–H bonds (NH3, NH 2 + , NH 2 - ), N2, H2, and CH4 molecules, as well as oxidized hydrogen species (OH– hydroxyl and molecular water H2O). Spectral characteristics of the glasses indicate significant influence of fO2 on the N–C–O–H proportion in the melt. They are expressed in a sharp decrease of NH 2 + , NH 2 - (O–NH2), OH–, H2O, and CH4 and simultaneous increase of NH 2 - (≡Si–NH2) and NH3 with decreasing fO2. As a result, NH3 molecules become the dominant nitrogen compounds among N–C–H components in the melt at fO2 two orders of magnitude below fO2(IW), whereas molecular СН4 prevails at higher fO2. The noteworthy feature of the redox reactions in the melt is stability of the ОН– groups and molecular water, in spite of the sufficiently low fO2. Our study shows that the composition of reduced magmatic gases transferred to the planet surface has been significantly modified under conditions of self-oxidation of mantle and magma ocean.

  • A universal method of sample preparation for liquid, solid, and gaseous
           samples based on a conversion solid-electrolyte reactor for measuring the
           isotope composition of light elements
    • Authors: V. S. Sevastyanov; N. E. Babulevich
      Pages: 1187 - 1195
      Abstract: Abstract A universal conversion solid-electrolyte reactor (SER) based on zirconium dioxide stabilized by yttrium oxide is developed. It ensures the complete oxidation of organic compounds of complex molecular structure in different physical states or the complete reduction of water and organic oxygen-containing substances in a flow of helium carrier gas. The optimum oxidation operation mode of the solid-electrolyte reactor is the mode ensuring the complete oxidation of organic compounds at the boundary line of the oxidation of organic compounds and, at the same time, prevents the inflow of oxygen from the environment to the carrier gas. The potential of the working electrode selected for carrying out experiments was equal to–175 mV (oxidation operation mode). The temperature of the reactor was 940–950oC. The standard deviations δ13СVPDB for organic substances oxidized by SER varied from 0.11 to 0.57‰ and were smaller than standard deviations in the oxidation of corresponding compounds in a commercial reactor. In using the SER–IRMS method (isotope ratio mass spectrometry combined with the solid-electrolyte reactor), a minimum amount of water (60–100 ng) was required. Standard deviations δDVSMOW attained using SER and using a commercial pyrolytic reactor were close to each other. Because of the simplicity and reliability of the design, the developed SER can successfully replace commercial oxidation and reduction reactors in isotope ratio mass spectrometry. In addition, the solid-electrolyte reactor can serve as a chromatographic detector, requiring no calibration in contrast to other detectors.

  • Membrane luminescence determination of technogenic actinides and their
           speciation in environmental objects
    • Authors: A. P. Novikov; Yu. I. Fabelinskii; E. A. Lavrinovich; T. A. Goryachenkova; A. A. Grechnikov
      Pages: 1196 - 1209
      Abstract: Abstract Researchers of the Vernadsky Institute of Geochemistry and Analytical Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences created a luminescence photometer of a new generation for the determination of trace amounts of uranium and transuranium elements (TUE). The limits of detection for actinides vary from 0.3 pg for uranium and neptunium to 2.0 pg for plutonium. For 237Np, the relative limit of detection is 0.008 Bq/L. The photometer was tested in the radioecological monitoring of a number of polluted zones in Russia. The dynamics of actinide migration in all of the studied zones enhanced in the series 239Pu < 241Am < 237Np. In this series, concentrations of radionuclides in water-soluble and exchange forms that are most mobile and determine the migration mobility of chemical elements increased in all of the studied soil types. In the group of fulvic acids, concentrations of radionuclides decreased in the series 237Np > 241Am > 239Pu irrespectively of the soil. In the group of humic acids, concentrations of radionuclides increased in the series 237Np < 239Pu < 241Am. The sorption coefficients of radionuclides by bottom sediments of the Markha River (Kraton-3 underground nuclear explosion site) and Lake Kyzyltash (East Urals Radioactive Trace) were calculated. Bioaccumulation factors of radionuclides by different plants in the impact area of the Kraton underground nuclear explosion were determined depending on the plant type.

  • Methods of local analysis for study of carbon in silicates: Nuclear
           microprobe analysis and secondary ion mass spectrometry
    • Authors: S. N. Shilobreeva; V. S. Bronsky
      Pages: 1210 - 1220
      Abstract: Abstract New approaches are proposed to analyze the content, distribution, and diffusion of carbon in silicates using nuclear microprobe analysis and secondary-ion mass spectrometry (SIMS). Techniques based on the nuclear reaction 12C(d,p)13C were developed to determine the coefficients of radiation-enhanced carbon diffusion in olivine at 300–370 K and deuteron doses that are comparable in terms of defect formation with those of α-particles generated by the decay of uranium and thorium isotopes for ~400 Ma (olivine age). The coefficients of thermal (D th) and radiation-enhanced (D rad) carbon diffusion in synthetic forsterite were compared to those of natural olivines from alkaline basalt nodule (Shevaryn Tsaram volcano, Mongolia). It is demonstrated that the diffusion coefficients strongly depends on the migration mechanisms of carbon atoms in crystals. The developed techniques and software package for SIMS determination of carbon distribution in silicates allowed us to study simultaneously the carbon and hydrogen distribution in a glass vein of the Chelyabinsk meteorite. The possible presence of hydrocarbons in the studied silicate glass of meteorite is suggested.

  • Separation of concentrated acid and salt solutions in nanoporous media as
           the basis for a new technology of processing of phosphorus-containing raw
    • Authors: R. Kh. Khamizov; N. A. Tikhonov; A. N. Krachak; A. N. Gruzdeva; N. S. Vlasovskikh
      Pages: 1221 - 1235
      Abstract: Abstract The physical and mathematical models were used to study the method of acid retardation for separating acids from their salts in concentrated multicomponent solutions using nanoporous sorption materials. A combined mechanism of separation relies on the fact that in the sorption phase having a low dielectric permittivity, smaller-sized acid particles, namely, the molecules or strongly bound and weakly hydrated ion pairs, can penetrate the nanopores and are retained within these pores due to molecular sorption or competitive solvation forces. The dissolved salts presented by highly hydrated ions or weakly bound ion pairs can easily pass through the porous medium with a flow of concentrated solution, which is pumped through the column packed with the granulated bed of gel-type ion exchange resins or hypercrosslinked polymers. In conventional cyclic AR processes, purified acid is desorbed by water according to the mechanism of competitive solvation. However, such processes can be successfully used only when the salts separated from acids are highly soluble, as is the case with chloride and nitrate solutions free of components that may form compounds insoluble in neutral medium. At the separation in real sulfate and phosphate media, which normally contain alkaline earth metals and other components, conventional AR- based technologies proved to be unsuccessful. The new modified version of acid retardation is based on the previously discovered effect of stabilization of colloidal systems and supersaturated solutions in porous ion exchange media. A distinctive feature of the proposed technique is the use of weakly acidic aqueous solutions, instead of water, at the stages of acid displace in the cyclic AR processes. The proposed technique of WPA purification using strong-base gel-type ion exchangers in the phosphate form opens up the possibility of stable and feasible processes of acid separation and purification with simultaneous extraction of valuable components, e.g., REE concentrate.

      Abstract: Abstract A combined approach to the analysis of volcanic ash (VA) was proposed. Ash particles were separated by size using a combination of vibration sieving on sieves (140, 70, 40 μm) and field-flow fractionation in a rotating coiled column (for separation of nano- and submicron particles). Initial samples and obtained fractions were characterized using scanning electron microscopy and static light scattering. Their elemental composition was determined using ICP-MS and ICP-AES methods. The radionuclide composition of the VA was studied by the low-background gamma spectrometry. The studies were carried out by the example of ashes from Puyehue volcano, the Puyehue Cordón Caulle volcanic group, Andes (Santiago, eruption on June, 2011), which were taken immediately after eruption and after first rain. It was shown that up to 15% of major elements (such as P, Ca, and К) and trace elements (such as Be, Hg, Tl, As, Sb, and Bi) could be extracted from the ash by rain and migrate into environment. It was also found that the content of radionuclides (U235, Th234, Pb214, Bi214, Be7) after rain decreases by 30–40%. Of special interest are ash nanoparticles (up to 200 nm), in which the contents of Cu, Pb, Tl, Bi, Sn, As, and Sb are over an order of magnitude higher than the bulk contents of these elements in the ash. This regularity was found in samples taken both prior to and after rain. The proposed methodology of fractionation, study, and analysis of ash particles may be applied for a wide range of soil, ash, and dust samples of different nature.

  • Microwave synthesis of nanosized model substances and sorption materials.
           Application to geochemical research
    • Authors: I. V. Kubrakova; M. S. Kiseleva
      Pages: 1261 - 1269
      Abstract: Abstract New methods were developed to synthesize nanosized phases for experimental study of the migration behavior of elements in natural conditions. The colloidal forms of palladium, platinum, and gold were obtained by microwave hydrothermal synthesis and stabilized by natural organic matters; their behavior at the contact with components of geochemical barriers is studied in model experiments. New approaches were proposed for designing sorption materials on the basis of nanosized magnetite. Polyfunctional sorbents with “core–multilayer shell” structure are synthesized by covalent and/or non-covalent immobilization of reagents on the surface of magnetic carrier under microwave heating. These sorbents are suitable for simultaneous or independent preconcentration the analytes of different nature under the analysis of aqueous media. The composition, structure, and sorption properties of new materials are investigated. The trace amounts of phenol derivatives and heavy metals were determined in waters to demonstrate the applicability of obtained sorbents for ecological studies.

  • Distribution of siderophile and chalcophile elements in serpentinites of
           the oceanic lithosphere as an insight into the magmatic and crustal
           evolution of mantle peridotites
    • Authors: S. A. Silantyev; I. V. Kubrakova; O. A. Tyutyunnik
      Pages: 1019 - 1034
      Abstract: Abstract The paper reports result of comparative analysis of the distribution of siderophile (Au, Pt, Pd, Co, Ni, and Cr) and chalcophile (Ag, Cd, Sb, Pb, Zn, Cu, As, and S) elements in ultramafic rock samples of various types of abyssal peridotites. One of the objectives of this research was to obtain reference estimates for the concentrations of siderophile and chalcophile elements in the two end members defining the geochemical evolutionary trends of the material of the suboceanic mantle: a sample of insignificantly depleted mantle material (spinel lherzolite) and extensively carbonated serpentinite after harzburgite, which was formed at the “endpoint” of the ascent of mantle material to the seafloor surface. The distribution of siderophile and chalcophile elements is proved to record information on the whole compositional evolution of abyssal peridotites corresponding to the trajectory of their exhumation from mantle depth levels to seafloor outcrops. These data indicate that the bulk-rock compositional parameters of abyssal peridotites can be utilized to estimate the contribution of magmatic and hydrothermal process to the distribution of siderophile and chalcophile elements.

  • Composition and conditions of crystallization of zircon from the
           rare-metal ores of the Gremyakha–Vyrmes Massif, Kola Peninsula
    • Authors: N. V. Sorokhtina; L. N. Kogarko; A. K. Shpachenko; V. G. Senin
      Pages: 1035 - 1048
      Abstract: Abstract The first data on the composition and inner structure of zircon, one of the main ore minerals of the rare-metal metasomatites of the Gremyakha–Vyrmes alkaline-ultramafic massif, are reported. Early zircon generations are enriched in Y and REE and contain numerous inclusions of rock-forming and accessory minerals of metasomatites, as well as syngenetic fluid inclusions of calcite, thorite and thorianite. Late generations differ in the elevated Hf content and contain no inclusions. The elevated concentrations of Ca and Th in the central zones of crystals are related to the presence of numerous micron-sized inclusions of calcite and thorium phases. All zircon varieties have extremely low U and Pb contents. Concentrations and distribution patterns of incompatible and rare-earth elements in zircon from the metasomatites of the Gremyakha–Vyrmes Massif are similar to those of syenite pegmatites and magmatic carbonatites around the world. Mineral from these associations shows a positive Ce anomaly and elevated HREE contents. According to the compositions of zircon and thorite inclusion in it and experimental data on the simultaneous synthesis of these minerals, the crystallization temperature of zircon was 700–750°С. Using Ti-in-zircon temperature dependence, late zurcon was formed at temperature of 700–750°С. The rare-metal metasomatites are formed at the final stages of the massif formation, presumably after foidolites. Carbonatites could initiate metasomatic reworking of foidolites and accumulation of trace metals in them. The evolution of the primary alkaline–ultramafic melt toward the enrichment in trace elements was mainly controlled by crystallization differentiation.

  • Quantitative parameters of Pleistocene pelagic sedimentation in the
           Atlantic Ocean
    • Authors: M. A. Levitan; T. N. Gel’vi
      Pages: 1049 - 1060
      Abstract: Abstract Lithological–facies maps of Eopleistocene and Neopleistocene sediments (with 10 and 20 m isopachs) are compiled for the pelagic part of the Atlantic Ocean based on materials recovered by 283 ocean drilling sites. Data for both maps were calculated using A.B. Ronov’s volumetric method. The calculated results include such quantitative sedimentation parameters of major sediment types as the areas covered by these sediments, their volumes, masses of the dry sedimentary material, and masses of sedimentary material deposited per specified time unit. These parameters are compared for both Eopleistocene and Neopleistocene time, and the data are utilized to separately interpret the results for terrigenous, carbonate, and siliceous sediments. The supply of terrigenous material is proved to have been enhanced in the Pleistocene as a result of both tectonic uplift of continents and climatic changes, including intensification of continental glaciation at high latitudes in both hemispheres. The growth in the productivity of carbonate plankton was overridden by growing generation of bottom and deep water masses and ensuing intensification of the dissolution of pelagic carbonates. The productivity of siliceous plankton practically did not change, perhaps, because of a favorable combination of the supply of dissolved silica and other nutrients from both West and East Antarctica.

  • Distribution of REE, Y, Sc, and Th in the unique complex rare-metal ores
           of the Tomtor deposit
    • Authors: A. V. Lapin; A. V. Tolstov; I. M. Kulikova
      Pages: 1061 - 1078
      Abstract: Abstract The REE (Ln), Y, Sc, and Th distribution in the unique complex rare-metal ores of the Tomtor deposit is considered. Significant variability of these components and REE composition is revealed. Ore blocks with elevated Y and HREE contents are identified among prevailing LREE-enriched ores. It is established that the REE variations in the ores are correlated with evolution of REE carriers during epigenetic transformations of the carbonatite weathering products, in particular, with a replacement of Ce-bearing minerals (monazite and florencite) by Y-bearing mineral, xenotime. It is found that LREE and HREE exhibit different behavior during formation of the Tomtor ores, which is expressed in the inert behavior and residual accumulation of Ce-group REE at essential introduction of Y, HREE, Sc, and Th during epigenetic transformation of weathering products of carbonatites, which represent one of the main factors of the formation of the unique rare-metal ores of the Tomtor deposit.

  • Character of spatiotemporal variations in the chemical composition of lake
           water under the influence of emission from copper–nickel plants:
           Prediction of acidification
    • Authors: N. A. Gashkina; T. I. Moiseenko
      Pages: 1079 - 1093
      Abstract: Abstract In this paper, we analyze the influence of variations in the emission of sulfur dioxide and solid substances by the Pechenganikel and Severonikel copper–nickel plants in Murmansk oblast on the chemical composition of lake water and development of acidification. The dynamics of ~100 lakes examined in 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, and 2009 and response of the chemical composition of the lake waters on the impact of acidifying substances was explored depending on the magnitude of load (distance from the plants), geologically controlled vulnerability of the lake catchments to acid precipitation, and the size of the lakes. Possible further changes in the sulfate concentration and pH values of lake waters were estimated for scenarios assuming an increase or a decrease in sulfur dioxide emission from the plants. It was shown that, in the zone of maximum and high load, a 20% change in sulfur dioxide emission will result in a mean change in sulfate concentration of ±8 μeq/L (which is comparable with the regional background) and a change in pH value of ±0.1 in acid-sensitive lakes and will have almost no effect on these parameters in lakes insensitive to acid precipitation.

  • Some general relations of the development of complex molecular objects at
           early stages of biosphere formation as a consequence of the physical
           properties of condensed medium
    • Authors: V. I. Baranov; L. A. Gribov; V. A. Dement’ev; I. V. Mikhailov
      Pages: 1011 - 1018
      Abstract: Abstract We analyzed the character of molecular transformations under conditions of condensed media, in which intermolecular interactions always occur. It was shown that, instead of discrete transfer of external energy into the molecule, the energy characteristics of the condensed medium (appearance of zones) could result in gradual accumulation of internal energy in reaction centers owing to sequential thermal collisions with particles of the medium initiating the chemical reaction. This does not require high temperatures. The established physical properties related to the energy characteristics of condensed media could play an important role in molecular transformations and, consequently, formation of complex molecular objects at early stages of biosphere formation.
