Abstract

A borosilicate nuclear waste glass was static leached in pure water, silicate water, and brine solution. Three different forms of lead were included in specified corrosion cells to assess the extent to which various lead species alter the leaching behavior of the glass. Weight loss data indicated that Pb//m and PbO greatly reduce the weight loss of glass when leached in pure water, and similar effects were noted in silicate and brine.
