Laponites® for the Recovery of 133Cs, 59Co, and 88Sr from Aqueous Solutions and Subsequent Storage: Impact of Grafted Silane Loads.

ABSTRACT: In this study, silylated Laponites® (LAP) were synthetized with various loads of 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTES) to evaluate their adsorption properties of 133Cs, 59Co, and 88Sr during single-solute and competitive experiments. The increase in the initial load of APTES increased the adsorbed amount of APTES in the resulted grafted clay. The characterization of LAP-APTES exhibited a covalent binding between APTES and LAP and emphasized the adsorption sites of APTES for each tested load. In comparison with raw LAP, LAP-APTES displayed significantly higher adsorption properties of Co2+, Cs+, and Sr2+. The competitive adsorption of these three contaminants provides a deeper understanding of the affinity between adsorbate and adsorbent. Therefore, Co2+ displayed a strong and specific adsorption onto LAP-APTES. Except for Cs+, the adsorption capacity was improved with increasing the load of APTES. Finally, the desorption behavior of the three contaminants was tested in saline solutions. Cs+ and Sr2+ were significantly released especially by inorganic cations displaying the same valence. Conversely, desorption of Co2+ was very low whatever the saline solution. LAP-APTES, therefore, presented suitable adsorption properties for the removal of radionuclides especially for Co2+, making this material suitable to improve the decontamination of radioactive wastewaters.
