Abstract : The chemistry and metallurgy of thorium and uranium were investigated extensively by workers on the Manhattan Project during the past few years. These investigations were pursued by all available scientific methods. Among these, the X-ray diffraction method provided a powerful tool for phase identification and structure determination, which greatly assisted in the solution of the metallurgical and chemical problems. Isostructural compounds with the composition U6M (where M = Mn, Fe, Co, and Ni) have been found and the structure determined. Single crystals, examined by the rotation, oscillation, Laue, and Weissenberg methods, exhibited the diffraction of D4h - 4/mmm.
