The progress made in the investigation of actinide colloid generation in groundwater is summarised and discussed, with particular examples relevant to an understanding of the migration behaviour of actinides in natural aquifer systems. Groundwater colloids, actinide real-colloids and actinide pseudocolloids are characterised. The generation processes and migration behaviour of actinide pseudocolloids are discussed, and some notable experimental examples are presented. The chemical aspects of the actinide colloid generation in groundwater are also discussed.
