Özet

In order to design the amidoxime resins (RNH) suitable for circulating fluidized bed adsorbers, RNH were prepared from precursory acrylonitrile-divinylbenzene copolymer beads of different particle sizes, and chemical and physical properties of the resulting RNH were evaluated. Specific surface areas, pore structures, swelling ratios, and anion- and cation-exchange capacities of RNH are little affected by the particle size, while their sedimentation velocities in water increase with an increase in particle size as expected from fluid dynamics. Although the uptake of uncomplexed uranyl ion from a uranyl nitrate solution (0.01 M) was not influenced by the particle size, the uranium uptake from seawater decreases with an increase in the particle size, indicating that the particle diffusion of the bulky complexed species UO2 (CO3)34- essentially controls the overall adsorption rate in the recovery of uranium from seawater.
