Chromatographic column investigations were performed for the recovery of uranium from aqueous medium of pH 1.0 and ionic strength of 0.6M/NaNO3/, which is comparable /in its chemical activity/ to certain high active waste solutions. Six different active beds were tested and compared in terms of their capacity for uranium, height equivalent to theoretical plate and their numbers. The main uranium species present in the medium were elucidated.
