Composite sorbents based on potassium nickel ferrocyanide embedded in silica gel matrix were prepared and characterised by powdered X-ray diffraction analysis, IR spectra, Mössbauer spectra and electron microscopy. The sorbent exhibits very good efficiency for cesium uptake and radiation resistance. The sorption capacity for cesium ions is comparable with the capacity for the pure ferrocyanides.
