Speciation predictions, ab initio calculations, and factor analysis methods are being used to identify aqueous nickel chloride complexes and their equilibrium constants in high temperature water. This is the first step towards determining a transport model for nickel complexes in a supercritical water-cooled reactor (SCWR).
