This work conducts a review on the kinetics of the uranium and water reaction system by gathering all available kinetic data and across a wide range of reaction conditions. Temperature and pressure dependent kinetic equations that describe the reaction are derived for the uraniumwater vapour and uranium-liquid water systems. Detailed tables which provide information about the reaction conditions and other parameters for each rate point are constructed. From evaluation of the tables, the effects of underlying parameters on the reaction kinetics are discussed. It is suggested that these parameters contribute to the reported discrepancies between reaction rate values under similar conditions. Better prediction of the corrosion rate and rate behaviour can be achieved by combining the kinetic rate equations with the effect of these underlying parameters.
