This compound can be prepared from uranium dioxide and uranium hydride by the following process: UO2 + 4 HF UF4 + 2H2O (500 oC, endothermic) UF4 + F2 UF6 (350 oC, endothermic).
"The Uranium Dioxide (UO2) produced in this plant is used for the production of fuel plates for the nuclear power plants, including Bushehr," he added.
These measures include providing information to the agency concerning alleged studies on the conversion of uranium dioxide into UF4, high explosives testing, and the design of a missile re-entry vehicle.

Depleted uranium dioxide in a granular form could be used to fill voids in the waste containers and also be embedded in steel plating to create a tough, dense layer nearly 10 inches thick just inside the containers' thin corrosion-resistant outer shell.
In 1997, a British Ministry of Defense paper -- recently leaked to the press -- warned that "inhalation of insoluble uranium dioxide dust will lead to accumulation in the lungs with very slow clearance -- if any" and noted that "uranium dust inhalation ...

Norm was assigned to the Corrosion Science group of the chemistry and materials division, working on fuel development for NPD-1 and NPD-2, Upon his return to Hamilton, he continued working on the many fuel design parameters associated with prototype manufacture (welding/brazing) of early CANDU fuel (NPD and Douglas Point), In 1979, he moved to the Port Hope fuel manufacturing facility where he continued to work on development work associated with fuel/pressure tube crevice corrosion, SCC, fretting corrosion and DHC of Zirconium, uranium dioxide, CANLUB coatings and steam generator materials.
