The adsorption of about 50 ions on molybdenum dibromide, (Mo6Br8)Br4·2H2O, in nitric acid was investigated. The preparation of the adsorber and its characterization is presented and discussed. Adsorption mechanism studies were carried out for some noble metals and chromium. Sorption cannot be ascribed to ion exchange mechanism but to formation of insoluble species, and to settlement of few ions into surface sorption sites or into a limited number of cavities in the cluster crystal structure of the adsorber.
