In-depth insights into glass corrosion: Researchers observe the reaction of silicate glass with aqueous solutions in real time
March 05, 2019
Silicate glass has many applications, including the use as a nuclear waste form to immobilize radioactive elements from spent fuel. However, it has one disadvantage -- it corrodes when it comes into contact with aqueous solutions. Scientists were able to observe in detail which processes take place.
