Title: Flux crystal growth: a versatile technique to reveal the crystal chemistry of complex uranium oxides

Abstract

This frontier article focuses on the use of flux crystal growth for the preparation of new actinide containing materials, reviews the history of flux crystal growth of uranium containing phases, and highlights the recent advances in the field. Specifically, we discuss how recent developments in f-element materials, fueled by accelerated materials discovery via crystal growth, have led to the synthesis and characterization of new families of complex uranium containing oxides, namely alkali/alkaline uranates, oxychlorides, oxychalcogenides, tellurites, molybdates, tungstates, chromates, phosphates, arsenates, vanadates, niobates, silicates, germanates, and borates. An overview of flux crystal growth is presented and specific crystal growth approaches are described with an emphasis on how and why they – versus some other method – are used and how they enable the preparation of specific classes of new materials.
