Title: METHOD OF INCREASING THE DISPERSIBILITY OF SLURRY PARTICLES

Abstract

A method is described for increasing the dispersibility of metallic oxide particles, particularly thorium oxide, in slurries. Organo-silicon compounds, such as organosilicon halides and silicate esters, are deposited on the surface of the oxide particles. A firing step conducted at temperatures of 600 to 1200 deg C removes the organic groups leaving a surface coating of silica, which provides the desired increase in particle dispersibility.
