In order to remove Sr ions and Cs ions from aqueous solution, PS-zeolite beads were prepared by immobilizing zeolite with polysulfone (PS). The prepared PS-zeolite beads were characterized by SEM, XRD, FT-IR, and TGA. The optimum condition to prepare PS-zeolite beads was 1.25 g of PS content and 2 g of zeolite A. The removal efficiencies of Sr and Cs ions by the PS- zeolite beads increased as the solution pH increases and nearly reached a plateau at pH 4. The PS-zeolite beads prepared in this study showed a remarkably high selectivity for Sr ion and Cs ion under the coexistence of ions such as Na+, K+, Mg2+, and Ca2+. Zeolite particles detached from the PS-zeolite beads were not observed on this experiments, and also the PS-zeolite beads maintained the morphological structure on a SEM image. The removal efficiencies of Sr ions and Cs ions by PS-zeolite beads were maintained over 90% even after five adsorption-desorption cycles. These results implied that the prepared PS-zeolite beads could be an available adsorbent for the adsorption of Sr and Cs ions. These results suggest that the PS-zeolite can potentially be used as an adsorbent in radioactive ions removal for the treatment of industrial wastewater.
