Two types of hydrous titanium dioxide possessing different surface properties were prepared and characterized to study the sorption kinetics of cesium. The effect of pH on the adsorption capacity were determined in both type sorbents and the maximum adsorption percentage of cesium were observed at pH 12. To elucidate the kinetics of ion-exchange reaction on hydrous titanium dioxide, the isotopic exchange rates of cesium ions between hydrous titanium dioxides and aqueous solutions were measured radiochemically and compared with each other. The diffusion coefficients of Cs+ ion for Type1 and Type2 titanium dioxides at pH 12 were calculated as 2.79 x 10(-11) m(2)s(-1) and 1.52 x 10(-11) m(2)s(-1), respectively, under particle diffusion controlled conditions.
