Plutonium is thought to exist mostly as very low soluble and/or strongly sorbed plutonium(IV) hydroxide and oxide species in the environment, and therefore, has low risk of becoming mobile or bioavailable. However, compounds that solubilize plutonium can significantly increase its bioavailability and mobility. We are examining the fundamental inorganic chemistry of actinides with one type of biogenic chelator, microbial siderophores, in order to understand how they could affect actinide biogeochemistry. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    Phytosiderophores are produced by most grasses and many crop plants for the solubilization and uptake of Fe from soil. These small natural organic chelators, all derivatives of mugineic acid, are designed to strongly bind low-solubility Fe, and possibly other metals, in a complex and competitive...
