Original Paper


Radiotracer isotopic technique as an effective analytical tool was used to study the kinetics of ion-isotopic exchange reactions in the nuclear- and nonnuclear-grade anion exchange resins Duolite ARA-9366B and Indion-AGR. On the basis of kinetic data, specific reaction rate (per minute), amount of ion exchanged (millimoles), initial rate of iodide ion exchange (millimoles per minute), and log K d values were calculated for the two resins. It was observed that under identical experimental conditions of 35.0 °C, 1.000 g of ion exchange resins, and 0.002 mol/L of labeled iodide ion solution, the values calculated were 0.200 min−1, 0.278 mmol, 0.056 mmol/min, and 9.6, respectively, for Duolite ARA-9366B resin, which were higher than 0.102 min−1, 0.216 mmol, 0.022 mmol/min, and 5.7, respectively, for Indion-AGR resins. An identical trend was observed for the two resins during bromide ion-isotopic exchange reaction. The overall results indicate that under identical experimental conditions, Duolite ARA-9366B resins show superior performance than Indion-AGR resins. The results of the present experimental work have demonstrated that the radioanalytical technique used here can be successfully applied for the characterization of different ion exchange resins so as to evaluate their performance under various process parameters.
