|Abstract:||The necessity of obtaining accurate thermodynamic quantities for the actinideelements and their compounds was recognized at the outset of the Manhattan Project, when a dedicated team of scientists and engineers initiated the program to exploit nuclear energy for military purposes. Since the end of World War II, both fundamental and applied objectives have motivated a great deal of further study of actinide thermodynamics. This chapter brings together many research papers and critical reviews on this subject. It also seeks to assess, to systematize, and to predict important properties of the actinide elements, ions, and compounds, especially for species in which there is significant interest and for which there is an experimental basis for the prediction. Many experimental and theoretical studies of thermochemical and thermophysical properties of thorium, uranium, and plutonium species were undertaken by Manhattan Project investigators.
