This study focused on sorption mechanism of Cs and Se in mudrock by batch techniques. Batch kinetics tests have been conducted with carriers 10− 4M CsCl and SeO2 by using individual and coupling radiotracers of 137Cs and 75Se. The distribution coefficients (K d ) of Cs in synthetic groundwater (GW) and seawater (SW) showed that there is no interference between individual and coupling value (13 and 6 ml/g). Moreover, individual and coupling K d ) (80 and 40 ml/g) of Se in GW and SW are in agreement with Cs. It is quite clear that the sorption mechanisms of Cs and Se on mudrock are independent and different by using radiotracer’s technique.
