Short description: Three materials designed to treat uranium-contaminated water were investigated, namely a cation exchange resin, an anion exchange resin and a recently developed material called PANSIL (quartz sand coated with 2% amidoxime resin by weight). The reaction rate, capacity, and effective pH range of the three materials are reported, as are the capacity and conditional distribution coefficient in neutral, uranyl-contaminated synthetic groundwater containing carbonate. The suitability of each material for treating uranium-contaminated groundwater using a permeable reactive barrier (PRB) approach is discussed.
