Abstract  

Apricot stone shells were carbonized under certain chemical and thermal conditions to produce sorbents having a quantitative affinity to retain some radioactive nuclei. The sorbent shows a thermal stability upto 500 °C. The diffraction patterns clarify that the sorbent is mainly amorphous in structure. Carbon in these shells was elementally analyzed and the data reveal a predominant content of acidic surface centers with hydrophilic properties. The isoelectric point (pHPZC) was determined and found to be 4.2 implying the acidic nature of the sorbent surface. The sorption of Cs+, Co2+ and Eu3+ on the prepared sorbent was studied from aqueous solution under different variables and the sorption capacity had values from 0.23-1.15 meq/g.
