Abstract: The adsorption of Se(IV) onto crushed Beishan granite (BS03, 600 m) was studied by a batch experimental method. The results showed that the distribution coefficient (Kd) remained almost constant in the pH range of 3-7 and decreased at pH>7. The adsorption of Se(IV) did not vary with ionic strength. The presence of Ca2+ (4.10×10-3 mol·L-1) and SO42- (3.17×10-3 mol·L-1) had no effect on Se(IV) adsorption. Moreover, we found that the adsorption of Se(IV) (1.46×10-5 mol·L-1) and Eu(III) (3.33×10-6 mol·L-1) on Beishan granite had no effect on each other in the ternary adsorption system consisting of Se(IV)/Eu(III)/ granite. The adsorption of Se(IV) onto Beishan granite was quantitatively interpreted by considering the two surface complexation reactions of HseO3- to form ≡SHSeO3 and ≡SSeO3- on the ≡SOH general adsorption sites.
