Sorptions of cesium and strontium on natural Wyoming bentonite have been investigated. A modified two-stage Freundlich sorption model was proposed on the basis of such primary factors as temperature, pH value and nuclide concentration which influence the sorption behavior of bentonite. The dominant sorption mechanism of bentonite was observed here to be an ion-exchange reaction, while physical adsorption functioned in a minor role.
