This work aims at the investigation of nano-Mg(OH)(2) as a promising adsorbent for uranium recovery from water. Systematic analysis including the uranium adsorption isotherm, the kinetics and the thermodynamics of adsorption of low concentrations of uranyl tricarbonate (0.1-20 mg L(-1)) by nano-Mg(OH)(2) was carried out. The results showed a spontaneous and exothermic uranium adsorption process by Mg(OH)(2), which could be well described with pseudo second order kinetics. Surface site… CONTINUE READING
