• Zirconolite - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zirconolite Zirconolite is a mineral, calcium zirconium titanate; formula CaZrTi 2 O 7.Some examples of the mineral may also contain thorium, uranium, cerium, niobium and iron; the presence of thorium or uranium would make the mineral radioactive.It is black or brown in color.

In addition, perovskite (CaTiO3), a common constituent of some ultramafic igneous rocks, has been shown to be amenable to precise uranium–lead dating.

    www.thoughtco.com/zircon-zirconia-zirconium-minerals-1440955 Zirconolite, CaZrTi 2 O 7, is neither a silicate nor an oxide but rather a titanate.In 2004 it was reported to be even better for dating old rocks than zircon, yielding data as precise as the SHRIMP (sensitive high-resolution ion microprobe) instrument allows. Zirconolite, though rare, may be widespread in igneous rocks but not recognized because it resembles rutile.

Ceramics were of theoretical density and formed with a controlled mean grain size of 1.9 ± 0.6 μm.
  • Synroc - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synroc Manufacture. Synroc is composed of three titanate minerals – hollandite, zirconolite and perovskite – plus rutile and a small amount of metal alloy.These are combined into a slurry to which is added a portion of high-level liquid nuclear waste.The mixture is dried and calcined at 750 °C (1,380 °F) to produce a powder.. The powder is then compressed in a process known as Hot Isostatic ...
