Xps Study of the Oxidation State of Uranium Dioxide
Keywords:Uranium dioxide, XPS, Chemical shift, Oxidation states
In this article we report an investigation of the oxidation state of uranium dioxide using X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy, and by comparing to results obtained in previous studies. We find that uranium dioxide in powder appears to share its six valence electrons with the oxygen atoms to form crystalline UO3.
