The Potential of Zeolites to Block the Uptake of Radioactive Strontium-90 in Organisms
Author(s): Shital Ovhal, Ian S. Butler and Sikun Xu
Zeolites have numerous environmental and industrial applications in which they function as molecular sieves, ion-exchangers, absorbers,
catalysts, and even detergent builders. While several general reviews about zeolites are available in the literature, the sorption characteristics
of the natural and synthetic zeolites, which could possibly be used in blocking the uptake of ingested radioactive 90Sr in organisms, have
not been described previously.
