In this study, the $$^{99}$$Mo adsorption and $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc elution mechanism were investigated using SEM-EDS to analyze the elemental composition of the material surfaces before Mo adsorption, after Mo adsorption and after $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc elution using saline solution. The results were compared with the value of adsorption capacity of the material to irradiated natural Mo and elution yield of $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc. From the changes of elemental composition in the surface, it was found that molybdate ions were adsorbed into the adsorbent by ion exchange with Cl$$^{-}$$ ion in the material. On the other hand, it was also revealed that $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc can be eluted from the material column in TcO$$_{4}$$$$^{-}$$ since oxidizing agent was needed in the elution process.
