Title: Synthetic clay excels in {sup 90}Sr removal

Abstract

Tests with actual ground water from Hanford site, and fundamental studies of 2Na{sup +}{yields}Sr{sup 2+} exchange equilibria revealed that a synthetic clay is extremely selective for {sup 90}Sr with a high capacity for uptake. Comparative studies with existing Sr selective ion exchangers clearly revealed that the present synthetic clay exhibited the best performance for {sup 90}Sr removal from actual ground water collected from three different locations at Hanford. This novel Sr ion sieve is expected to be useful for the decontamination of the environment after accidental release and contamination with {sup 90}Sr. (c) 2000 Materials Research Society.
