Title: Wet chemical synthesis of apatite-based waste forms – A novel room temperature method for the immobilization of radioactive iodine

Abstract

The wet chemical synthesis of Pb 10(VO 4) 6I 2apatite has been reported for the first time. The possibility of substituting Ca 2+for Pb 2+and (PO 4) 3−for (VO 4) 3−in the apatite structure has been explored.
