    Fluorine is found in the glass phase in volcanic rocks such as the tuffs at Yucca Mt. There was concern that fluoride would leach from the glass phase and increase the mobility of plutonium & TRU in spent fuel that was planned to be disposed of at Yucca Mt.

    I tried to find a link between WF Libby, who worked on fluorides and gaseous diffusion, and Quarterman but Google didn't help.

    look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.

      between Libby and Quarterman in my lit. search, but it seems like there is one, given their common work and common era.
