The formation constants of dioxouranium(VI)-1,2,3-propanetricarboxylate [tricarballylate (3-), TCA] complexes were determined in NaCl aqueous solutions at 0 < or = I/mol L(-1) < or = 1.0 and t=25 degrees C, by potentiometry, ISE-[H+] glass electrode. The speciation model obtained at each ionic strength includes the following species: ML-, MLH0, ML2(4-) and ML2H3- (M = UO2(2+) and L = TCA). The dependence on ionic strength of protonation constants of 1,2,3-propanetricarboxylate and of the metal-ligand complexes was modeled by the SIT (Specific ion Interaction Theory) approach and by the Pitzer equations. The formation constants at infinite dilution are [for the generic equilibrium p UO22+ + q (L3-) + r H+ = (UO2(2+))p(L)qHr(2p-3q+r); betapqr]: log beta110 = 6.222 +/- 0.030, log beta111 = 11.251 +/- 0.009, log beta121 = 7.75 +/- 0.02, log beta121 = 14.33 +/- 0.06. The sequestering ability of 1,2,3-propanetricarboxylate towards UO2(2+) was quantified by using a sigmoid Boltzman type equation.
