The effective and efficient removal of radioactive Cs from contaminated soil is highly urgent for the nuclear post-accident remediation. In present study, we achieved rapid Cs desorption from both a typical micaceous clay (i.e., vermiculitized biotite, VB) and actually contaminated soil by high-speed ion exchange through temperature-controlled continuous leaching with Mg-solutions in a column reactor. Cs-sorbed VB was firstly employed as a soil surrogate to explore the macro-Cs desorption process and micro-mechanism in detail.
