The biogeochemical activities of free-living and symbiotic fungi must be acknowledged in attempts to understand uranium cycling and dispersal in the environment. Although the near-surface geochemistry of uranium is very complex and a wide variety of mineral phases is known, uranium trioxide (UO3) and triuranium octaoxide (U(3)O(8)) can be used as well characterized models in the study of biotransformations. We have used a complex methodological approach involving advanced solid state speciation… CONTINUE READING
