The adsorption-exchange equilibrium time and the adsorption isotherms of UO22+,137Cs,169Yb and HPO42− on modified peat have been investigated by batch experiments. The effect of pH on the adsorption-exchange percentage (E) and the distribution coefficients (Kd) was also examined. It was found that the adsorption-exchange of UO22+ and169Yb on the modified peat was described well by Freundlich isotherm, whereas the adsorption-exchange of137Cs and HPO42− on modified peat corresponded to a Langmuir isotherm and the maximum adsorption capacities of the modified peat for137Cs and HPO42− ions were 4.4 and 4.1 μg/g respectively. The optimum pH for the adsorption-exchange of UO22+,137Cs,169Yb and HPO42− on the modified peat was 7.0 at 25°C.
(OAc–) proceeding in shell-core inorganic ion exchanger Ti (HPO4)2·1/2H2O has been studied and the diffusion equation whose boundary conditions are satisfied by a shell-core model was solved. Based on the equation solved and experimental data, the diffusion coefficients corresponding to the exchange process
(OAc–) and Li+–H+ (OAc–) at 17°C are found to be 7.7×10–9 and 6.2×10–8 cm2 s–1 and the activation energies 3.4×104 and 5.0×103 J mol–1, respectively. Compared to the gel type of styrene-divinylbenzene strong acid exchanger with 20% cross linking, it can be concluded that the rate of

Our previous paper reported the effect of acidity and temperature on uranous-uranil isotope exchange reaction in sulphuric
acid solution.1 It was found that the half-life of the isotope reactiont1/2 is around 10 seconds, when the acidity and the temperature of the reaction system are reasonably selected. However, when
the uranium isotopes are enriched by ion exchange the single separation factor could be 1.001. Thus, the half-life,t1/2 is less than one second for potential industrial application.
