Abstract

This study investigates sorption and diffusion of strontium (Sr) in two potential host rocks (granite from Kingman Island and basalt from Penghu Island) by using batch and column methods. According to solid-phase analysis, the sorption component primarily contained iron–magnesium (Fe–Mg) minerals in basalt and granite. Moreover, the distribution coefficient (Kd) of Sr in various concentrations obtained from batch tests indicated a higher sorption capacity in basalt than that in granite because of the 10 % Fe–Mg mineral content. According to the diffusive results in crushed and intact rocks, it showed that major retardation of Sr depended on the micro-porous structure of tested media, such as decreases of constrictivity and increases of tortuosity.
