We investigated atomic hydrogen solubility in UO2 using DFT. We predict that hydrogen energetically prefers to exist as a hydride ion rather than form a hydroxyl group by 0.27 eV, and that on diffusion hydrogen's charge state will change. The activation energy for conversion of hydride to hydroxyl is 0.94 eV.
