Abstract

The ratio of equilibrium radionuclide concentration in the solid phase to the concentration in soil solution i.e. the distribution coefficient (Kd) can be used for quantification of a radionuclide' s migration potential in the subsurface. Kd is one of the main parameter that describes soil absorbability for any radionuclide. In this study, distribution coefficients (Kd,s) of 137Cs were measured by a batch technique for five Malaysian soil series samples to evaluate the absorbability of 137Cs. The five Malaysian soils series samples i.e. Durian, Rengam, Holyrood, Segamat and Selangor were collected systematically at different depths (0-20 cm, 20-40 cm and 40-60 cm), at five different sites in Malaysia. The calculated Kd values for Durian, Holyrood, Rengam, Segamat and Selangor soil series were in the range of 958 to 3231 ml g-1, 273 to 1349 ml g-1 (mean: 853 ± 444 ml g-1), 202 to 1739 ml g-1 (mean: 754 ± 724 ml g-1), 216 to 546 ml g-1 (mean: 388 ±113 ml g-1) and 3389 to 5919 ml.g-1 (mean: 4657 ± 918 ml g-1), respectively. Thus this study indicated that the 137Cs Kd values of the soils varies with type and depth of the soil and can be used as a good backfill choice for final disposal sites for retarding migration of 137Cs.
