Abstract

INTERESTED by the communication of Sebba1, some scanning tests were undertaken in order to ascertain whether the flotation of ions could be used for the decontamination of radioactive effluent. The results obtained may be considered as being indicative and of limited value only, owing to the fact that no special efforts have been made to achieve optimal conditions, to use foam stabilizers, etc.
