ABSTRACT
The sorption of Pu(IV), polymeric Pu(IV), Pu(V) and Pu(VI) from the 0.1 M NaClO4 solution onto multiwalled carbon nanotubes was investigated. The kinetic study of the sorption process have shown that the polymeric Pu(IV) has the highest sorption rate, while decrease of sorption rate for plutonium aqua-ions in the order Pu(VI) > Pu(IV) > Pu(V) was found. Strong dependence of sorption kinetics of ionic plutonium species on pH was shown, in contrast to polymeric species, that were shown to quantitatively sorb (99%) in the wide pH range (pH 2–10). Two different sorption mechanisms for ionic and polymeric plutonium species were proposed: on the bases of sorption isotherms chemisorptions of plutonium aqua-ions onto carbon nanotubes and through intermolecular interaction for the polymeric plutonium species was defined. Distribution coefficients of plutonium in various oxidation states were found to increase with pH, showing the highest values for polymeric plutonium sorption ( K d = 2.4 × 105 mL g−1 at pH = 6).
