The article has studied the possibilities of using of magnetic potassium–zinc hexacyanoferrate(II) for concentration of 137Cs and its further radiometric determination in natural water media. It has been shown that highly selective removal of 137Cs (distribution coefficient constitutes (9.5–249) × 103 cm3/g) on the proposed sorbent is observed in a wide range of the V/m ratio.
