    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Three different Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) treatments were applied to highly sinteractive, near-stoichiometric UO&lt;sub&gt;2.04&lt;/sub&gt; nanocrystalline (5 nm) powders produced by U(IV) oxalate hydrothermal decomposition at 170 &amp;deg;C. The sintering conditions for reaching 95 % Theoretical Density (TD) in regular SPS, high pressure SPS (HP-SPS), and, for the first time, two-step SPS (2S-SPS), were determined. Densification to 95 % TD was achieved at 1000 &amp;deg;C in regular SPS (70 MPa applied pressure), 660 &amp;deg;C in HP-SPS (500 MPa), and 650-550 &amp;deg;C in 2S-SPS (70 MPa). With the goal of minimising the grain growth during densification, the sintering treatments were optimised to favour densification over coarsening, and the final microstructures thus obtained are compared. Equally dense UO&lt;sub&gt;2&lt;/sub&gt; samples of different grain sizes, ranging from 3.08 &amp;micro;m to 163 nm, were produced. Room-temperature oxidation of the powders could not be avoided due to their nanometric dimensions, and a final annealing treatment was designed to reduce hyperstoichiometric samples to UO&lt;sub&gt;2.00&lt;/sub&gt;.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
