The reactive mechanism of cesium in crushed granite was demonstrated in this study through a numerical analysis or a model of the results of sorption/desorption kinetic tests. To employ such numerical analysis, this study applied batch kinetic tests with different solid to liquid ratios (1:20 and 1:30) for the characterization of sorption/desorption reaction of Cs and the calibration/validation of hypothesized reactive models. Based on the least square errors (LSE) between numerical analysis and results of batch tests, the two-site sorption models, which are corresponding to two decay constants (λ1 and λ2), might be more adequate than one-site sorption models in characterizing Cs sorption/desorption. Moreover, a two-site Langmuir kinetic model has been found to be capable of appropriately describing Cs sorption/desorption under test conditions.
