In the present work, we have performed a series of laboratory batch sorption experiments of plutonium (IV) on zeolite (clinoptilolite) colloids to understand the role of colloids in the transport of plutonium under groundwater conditions similar to those found at the NTS. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
