  abstract  = {Electrolytic dissolution characteristics of UO2 and
SIMFUEL electrodes were studied at several potentials in carbonate
solutions of a high concentration at several pHs. The electrolytic
uranium dissolution was much affected by a corrosion product of
UO2CO3 generated at the electrode during the dissolution in carbonate
solution. The corrosion product distorted the voltammogram at UO2
and SIMFUEL electrodes in the potential region of oxygen evolution
and increased the overpotential of oxygen evolution at the electrode.
The effective dissolution in a carbonate solution could be obtained at
an applied potential such as +4 V (vs SSE) or more which had an
overpotential of oxygen evolution high enough to rupture the
corrosion product on the electrode surface.},
