Ion-exchange studies of 110mAg(I) using synthetic inorganic ion-exchanger



In the present investigation, the selective adsorption of silver on synthetic inorganic ion exchanger, zinc(II) ferrocyanide, has been established by batch method, under specific conditions, using 110mAg as a tracer. The efficiency of adsorption has been determined by γ-ray spectrometry and was found to be greater than 96%. The Ag(I) uptake by the exchanger has also been evaluated. The selectivity of the method was checked by studying the adsorption of Ag(I) in the presence of a number of foreign ions using their corresponding tracers. The interfering ions were removed by washing the ion-exchanger with appropriate reagents, so that it could be applied for the determination of trace amount of Ag(I) in complex matrices, containing trace amount of other metal ions.
