Cesium and strontium ion exchange on the framework titanium silicate M2Ti2O3SiO4.nH2O (M = H, Na). Academic Article uri icon


  • The ion exchange properties of the titanium silicate, M2Ti2O3SiO4.nH2O (M = H, Na), toward stable and radioactive 137Cs+ and 89Sr2+, have been examined. By studying the cesium and strontium uptake in the presence of NaNO3, CaCl2, NaOH, and HNO3 (in the range of 0.01-6 M) the sodium titanium silicate was found to be an efficient Cs+ ion exchanger in acid, neutral, and alkaline media and an efficient Sr2+ ion exchanger in neutral and alkaline media, which makes it promising for treatment of contaminated environmental media and biological systems.
