Abstract

Several mesoporous titanium phosphate phases, with varying pore sizes, were prepared using non-ionic surfactants and easily handled titanium precursors under mild reaction conditions. Preliminary testing reveals that these materials have high affinity for certain radionuclides of environmental concern.
