Abstract

The distribution of solutes and solvent between an aqueous solution of salt and an ion exchange resin has been measured at ambient temperature. The experiments have been performed for aqueous solutions of KNO3, KCl, Ca(NO3)2 and CaCl2 in the concentration range of 0-3N. The absorption has been measured for 3 gel type and 3 macroreticular resins with a degree of crosslinking varying from 10.5 to 18.5%. The experimental results have been modeled with the Extended UNIQUAC model combined with an elastic term taking the elastic properties of the resin structure into account. The model shows very good predictions with varying degree of crosslinking, and the deviations between model results and experimental data are all within the experimental error.
