Influence of adipic acid on the speciation of Eu(III): review of thermodynamic data in NaCl and NaClO$_4$ media, and a new determination of Eu-adipate complexation constant in 0.5 mol.kg$_w$$^{-1}$ NaClO$_4$ medium by time-resolved luminescence spectroscopy

Abstract : The complexation of Eu(III) by adipic acid — AdipH$_2$, hexane-1,6-dioic acid —, one of the major hydro-soluble degradation products (HDPs) from radio-oxidized polyesterurethane, is investigated by time-resolved luminescence spectroscopy (TRLS) in NaClO$_4$ ionic medium (0.5 mol.kg$_w^{-1}$). The solubility and deprotonation constants of adipic acid, as well as specific interaction theory (SIT) coefficients of aqueous AdipH$_2$(aq) and adipate ions (AdipH$^–$ and Adip$^{2–}$) were estimated using available literature data in NaCl and NaClO$_4$ ionic media. A 1:1 (EuAdip$^+$) complex is evidenced in TRLS with log$_{10}$β(0.5 m) = 2.09 ± 0.16. Using reaction constant at another NaClO$_4$ ionic strength from literature, the logarithm of reaction constant log$_{10}$β° = 3.88 ± 0.40 at 0 ionic strength and specific ion parameter $\varepsilon$(EuAdip$^+$,ClO$_4^-$) = (0.10 ± 0.40) kg$_w$.mol$^{-1}$ is estimated. This implies that adipic acid can control the Eu(III) speciation from mildly acidic to mildly basic conditions, but not in highly basic solutions characteristic of cementitious interstitial waters.
