Two Students named 2019 Innovations in Nuclear Technology R&D Awards
"Kristen Pace, a doctoral candidate in inorganic chemistry, and Christian Juillerat, a doctoral candidate in chemistry, have each been awarded a first-place prize in the Innovations in Nuclear Technology R&D Awards sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Nuclear Technology R&D.
Pace’s award is in the Material Recovery and Waste Form Development category of the open competition. Her research paper, “Na2(UO2)(BO3): An All-Uranium(V) Borate Synthesized under Mild Hydrothermal Conditions,” was published in the journal Inorganic Chemistry in April 2018.
Juillerat’s award is in the Used Fuel Disposition category. Her award-winning research paper, “Overstepping Lӧwenstein’s Rule — a Route to Unique Aluminophosphate Frameworks with 3D Salt-Inclusion and Ion Exchange Properties,” was published in the journal Inorganic Chemistry in December 2018."
