Study of hexacyanoferrate(II) nanodiamond adsorbent for the preconcentration of cesium and size categorization of radiocesium particles from contaminated soil
High levels of radioactive cesium (RCs) were released into the environment as a result of the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant accident in March 2011. Wide areas, including residential and farming spaces, were contaminated to varying degrees with 134Cs and 137Cs which has presented complications with soil and water utilization for personal use. The current decontamination efforts used to remove RCs from the topsoil have been costly and created new challenges in storing low-level radioactive waste. Meanwhile, determining low levels of radioactivity in the environment is a challenge in itself, ...
