Description: Thermodynamic data for aqueous reactions of key radionuclides are needed for geochemical modeling studies of the Yucca Mountain Project. This report summarizes progress through February 1999 in a study of waste glass colloid interaction with corrosion product solids. The purpose of the present task is to investigate more directly the exchange behavior of the Pu associated with the waste glass colloids. The goal is to obtain results that will be used to improve models of colloidal transport of Pu from the repository. The major experimental subtasks are (1) synthesis of waste glass colloidal suspensions and (2) batch experiments in which the suspensions are equilibrated with Fe<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> solids of defined particle size.
