Abstract [en]

The effects of organic cement additives (totally 7) on the sorption of Eu on cement and TiO2 were measured with variation of the concentration of the additive (0.001-10% of the water phase) and reaction time (up to 420 d). There was a significant reduction of the sorption of Eu on cement as well as on TiO2 after 24 h of exposure time in the presence of additives at levels that would be obtained in a cement/water system if the total load of the additive in the cement (up to 3%) would be released into the water phase. Sorption increased with time and would be expected to reach constant levels after 100-200 d. Storage of the additives at 60 and 120°C, pH 12.5, for up to 110 d (in order to degrade them) did not lead to significantly altered sorption behaviour.
