The sorption of Ba2+ ion on natural kaolinite and chlorite-illite clays was investigated at different initial concentrations and temperatures using the radiotracer method. The sorption data were well described by Freundlich and Dubinin-Radushkevich isotherms. Ba2+ sorption on both clays showed an exothermic behavior with ΔH° (kJ/mol) values being -7 and -5 for sorption on kaolinite and chlorite illite mixed clay, respectively. The ΔG° values indicate that the sorption was spontaneous with sorption energies corresponding to ion-exchange type sorption. X-ray diffraction studies showed that no significant change in the matrix of the clays occurred upon Ba2+ sorption.
