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.
