Abstract: The current status of SYNROC C research and development by the Australian Atomic Energy Commission is reviewed. A non-radioactive fabrication demonstration line designed to produce 10 cm o.d., 90 cm long, cylinders of SYNROC canned in stainless steel by the method of in-can hot pressing is being commissioned. Leach tests are proving the excellent leach resistance of SYNROC. Accelerated radiation damage testing using fast neutrons has simulated storage times of up to 6.7×105 years. Thermophysical properties of SYNROC have been measured over the temperature range 20–650°C. © Materials Research Society 1982
