Abstract  

The amphoteric acid-base behavior of hydrous zirconium oxide (HZO) was investigated by titrating HZO with 0.05M HNO3 and NaOH at constant ionic strength. The sorption of strontium from 0.05M NaNO3 solution was measured as a function of pH. Abrupt increase in sorption was observed at the equilibrium pH of 9. The experimental titration and strontium sorption data on HZO were evaluated using the constant capacitance model (CCM) and diffuse double layer model (DLM). Various model parameters of Surface Complexation Models (SCM) were estimated, numerically, by non-linear regression. Modeling the sorption and speciation of Sr2+ on HZO indicated that the hydrolysis of Sr2+ to lower charged SrOH+ is the pre-requisite for the abrupt sorption behavior at pH 9.
