RE: Shelf life Uranyl Nitrate
|From:||Jim at ProSciTech <firstname.lastname@example.org>|
I have no experience with U nitrate, but lots with U acetate, which in many
ways is rather similar. Aqueous UA when stored refrigerated (and therefore
mostly in the dark, because it also deteriorates in light), is useable for one
month. Made up in alcohol, at best its good for one week.
If the aqueous solution is much over a month old or was frequently left out on
the bench, then a fine precipitate is visible in TEM, at that point clearly the
material loses its activity.
