The migration of actinides inside cement (or concrete) is very slow, even when the material is saturated with water. Precipitation of actinide hydroxide explains this retention phenomenon. The aim of this work is to measure Am solubility in aqueous solutions equilibrated with CPA55 cement, in order to compare it with thermodynamic predictions and correlate it to (future) migration measurements of Am through cement discs.
