Studies on the adsorption behaviour of lutetium on sand

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The adsorption behaviour of lutetium on sand samples was investigated and the conditions for maximum adsorption optimized. The effects of foreign ions, both cations and anions, were also investigated. The distribution coefficient value, KD, was compared to those for other meta ions adsorbed under similar conditions. The adsorption data seem to provide a good fit to the Freundlich isotherm and to the Dubinin-Radushkevich (D-R) equation.
