Abstract

By contracting with the Parr Instrument Company and Bruker Optical Systems, we have developed a system for continuous monitoring of hydrothermal and room temperature reactions by Raman spectroscopy. Using the uranyl peroxide cage cluster {[UO2(O2)(OH)]16[UO2(O 2)2]4}24- (denoted {U 20R}) and a coordination polymer made from uranyl ions and 4,4′-biphenyldicarboxylate as model systems, we demonstrate the spectroscopically observable changes associated with reaction progress and crystallization.
