In the present paper the uni-univalent and uni-bivalent ion exchange reactions were investigated using nuclear grade anion exchange resin Indion-223 in H+ form. For both H+/K+ uni-univalet ion exchange reactions and H+/Mg2+ uni-bivalet ion exchange reactions, the equilibrium constant K values increases from 0.01710 to 0.02374 and from 0.000177 to 0.000333 respectively as the reaction temperature rises from 35.0 °C to 45.0 °C. The increase in K values with temperature suggest endothermic ion exchange reactions having the enthalpy change values of 22.72 and 51.46 kJ/ mol respectively. The results of such studies will help in selection of suitable ion exchange resins in order to bring about efficient separation of different ionic species present in the waste water effluents released from nuclear as well as chemical process industries.
