Formal redox potentials of the U4+/U3+ and U 3+/U couples in molten LiCl-RbCl eutectic were determined by cyclic voltammetry. These redox potentials were more negative than those in the LiCl-KCl eutectic but positive comparing to those in the NaCl-CsCl eutectic. This relation would be correlated with the averaged alkali cation radius.
