In this work we studied the effect of oxidation on the sorption properties of carbon materials, produced on the basic of activated carbons FAS and VSK in relation to radionuclides Am(III) and Tc(VII). It has been found that the oxidation increases the distribution coefficients for the extraction of radionuclides of sorption nitric acid raising agents. As to identify the mechanism of the oxidation influence on the sorption properties the physical and chemical properties of the synthesized samples (porous surface structure, IR-spectrums etc.) were studied. The possibility of removal of radionuclides from the real industrial solutions of complex composition using of the obtained carbon nanomaterials was investigated.
