Radioactive Properties
Flammability
Uranium burns in air
u
Radioactive decay products
u
Large amounts of water will extinguish a
u
Criticality
u
fire, but
Uranium plus water produces hydrogen gas
u
Special fire extinguishers smother the fire

Toxicity
Chemical Reactivity
Uranium is reactive
u
Heavy metals are toxic
Many possible chemical hazards
u
u
Uranium metal oxidizes in hours
u
Uranium is comparable to lead in toxicity
u
Uranium chips ignite immediately
u
Uranium in water produces flammable hydrogen
u
gas
Uranium should be in oil for long-term storage
u
Concentration of decay products can cause
u
increased exposure rates
