ABSTRACT
Attrition is erosion by friction, i.e., wearing down of particles by friction due to water. Powdery materials such as titanium dioxide (TiO2), a well known sorbent, suffers from attrition loss during metal ion recovery, mainly during regeneration of TiO2 for reuse. To minimize the inorganic sorbent (TiO2) loss, inorganic-organic composite (hybrid) sorbent was prepared from a radical initiated solution polymerization of acrylamide and freshly prepared titanium dioxide. Uranium uptake has been compared with titanium dioxide (freshly prepared), TiO2-polymer composite and virgin polymer. The potential of this composite sorbents for the uranium recovery was ascertained.
