Ahmed, Imad A. M. and Young, Scott D. and Crout, Neil M. J. (2006) Time-dependent sorption of Cd2+ on CaX zeolite : experimental observations and model predictions. Geochimica and Cosmochimica Acta, 70 (19). pp. 4850-4861. ISSN 0016-7037Full text not available from this repository.
The effect of prolonged contact time (up to 130 days) on the immobilization of Cd by sorption to calcium exchanged zeolite-X (CaX), under environmentally relevant conditions, was studied using both isotopic exchange and extended X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy (EXAFS). Sorption and isotopic exchange measurements revealed time-dependent Cd sorption and indicated the movement of Cd2+ ions into less accessible sites due to ageing. EXAFS suggested progressive fixation of Cd in the double six-ring (D6R) unit of the CaX structure. Proportional allocation of the apparent Cd–Si bond distance to two ‘end-members’, across all contact times, indicated that the bond distance for labile Cd was 3.41 Å and for non-labile (or fixed) Cd was 3.47 Å.
