The results show that pollucite could be synthesized with a wide range of Cs Immobilization content using a short curing time (2 h) or low curing temperature (160 °C). However, a higher curing tem- Cesium perature or a longer curing time seems to favor the formation of more pollucite. With the addition of Ca(OH) ,a Pollucite tough pollucite body could be synthesized, and the strength enhancement is mainly due to calcium silicate hydrate (C-S-H) formation. This also suggests that the hydrothermal technology has great potential for the
