Radioisotopic Tracer Technique for Characterization of Nuclear and Non-Nuclear Grade Ion Exchange Resins Tulsion A-23 and Indion-810

Full Text PDF


In the present paper 82Br radioactive tracer isotopes was used for characterization of nuclear and non-nuclear grade ion exchange resins Tulsion A-23 and Indion-810 respectively. The bromide ion-isotopic exchange reactions were performed by equilibrating 1.000 g of conditioned resins in bromide form with labeled bromide ion solution of different concentrations ranging from 0.001 M to 0.004 M, in the temperature range of 30.0 °C to 45.0 °C. The resins were characterized by comparing the values of specific reaction rate (min-1), amount of bromide ion exchanged (mmol) and percentage of bromide ions exchanged under identical experimental conditions. It was observed that the above values decrease with rise in temperature and increases with increase in concentration of labeled bromide ion solution. From the experimental values of specific reaction rate, amount and percentage of bromide ions exchanged, it was observed that Tulsion A-23 resins are superior to Indion-810 resins under identical experimental conditions.
