Abstract: Ba, the transmutation product of radioactive Cs, can be incorporated at levels of up to ∼0.07 formula units in Cs(1−2x)BaxAlSi2O6 aluminium pollucite formed by sol-gel methods and sintering at 1400 °C, with more Ba forming BaAl2Si2O8 phases. The effect of Ba substitution in pollucite-structured CsFeSi2O6 was also studied and no evidence of Ba substitution in the pollucite structure via cation vacancies or Fe2+ formation was obtained. The Ba entered a Fe-silicate glass structure. Charge compensation was also attempted with a Cs+ + Fe3+ ↔ Ba2+ + Ni2+ scheme but again the Ba formed a glass and NiO was evident. PCT leaching data showed CsFeSi2O6 to be very leach resistant. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.
