Abstract

We used ‘Voltammetry of MicroParticles’ to investigate electrochemically samples from the Boda Albitic Claystone, a potential site for deep underground disposal of nuclear waste in Hungary. The samples were collected near the surface and at a depth of 1050 m. The electrochemical characterization in acidic media allowed the identification of Fe2+ and Fe3+ ions associated with clays, hematite and pyrite. The cathodic detection of pyrite does not raise special difficulties, but the anodic one is complex and depends on the time of the samples exposure to the atmosphere. This work completes a previous Mössbauer spectroscopy study by clarifying the presence, or absence, of extremely small amounts of pyrite in some samples.
