As part of a programme aimed at understanding chemical reactions between nuclear waste materials and shale repositories in the presence of hot pressurized ground water, the immobilization of Cs released from spent nuclear fuel-elements and clay minerals in repository wallrock has been investigated. Formation of insoluble pollucite (CsAlSi2O6) dominated the reactions, leading to immobilization of much of the Cs.D.F.B.
