The Application of Caesium Selective Sorbents in the Remediation and Restoration of Radioactive Contaminated Sites

  • V. P. Remez
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASEN2, volume 13)


Nuclear activities have resulted in the contamination of large areas with caesium. This manuscript describes sorbents which absorb caesium with a very high selectivity and can be used to:
  1. 1)

    decrease the uptake of caesium by animals;

  2. 2)

    concentrate caesium -and if specifications are changed- other radionuclides in liquids, which may range from milk to large water bodies, to facilitate the analyses;

  3. 3)

    remove radionuclides from liquid wastes.
