Spectroscopic studies of the surface laser plasma formed by the action of sequential high-power double laser pulses close to a porous body containing microquantities of ammonium polyuranates showed that the intensities of uranium spectral lines that are proportional to the elemental content in the plasma depend significantly on the physicochemical properties of the uranium compounds. The line intensities increase by several times with almost the same increase in the formation enthalpy of the compounds.
