Comparative study on the properties of irradiated strong and weak cation exchangers
- 25 Downloads
Gamma irradiation of cation exchange resins results in breaking down of functional groups and as a result decreases in exchange capacity, weight and moisture content. There are significant changes in the pH of the effluent as well. The influence on these physico-chemical properties is more by 10–15% when the thorium form of polyacrylic carboxylic acid type exchanger is exposed to radiation as compared to the polystyrene sulphonic acid type exchanger exposed.
