Abstract : Arguments have arisen over the solubility of Depleted U3O8 in lung and other interstitial fluids. Knowing that Depleted U3O8 was insoluble in water, this study was undertaken to determine the relative solubilities, if any, in biological fluids. Results show very low solubility (less than 12%) for the biological fluids studied. (Author)
