In the present study, batch kinetic tests have been performed for boron removal from model solutions using boron selective ion exchange resins Diaion CRB 02, Dowex (XUS 43594.00) and Purolite S 108. Several kinetic models have been used to evaluate the sorption kinetics of boron by means of a well mixed stirred system, diffusional models, pseudo-first-order, and pseudo-second-order kinetic models. The mass transfer model, based on a well stirred system including maximum capacity (Q(m), mg/g) and Langmuir constant (b, L/mg) values obtained from Langmuir isotherms, has been used to obtain predictive concentration changes against time. The experimental results have been used to compare with the modelling data for different ionic strength media.
