The effective immobilization of Cs+ and/or Sr2+ sorbed on hexagonal tungsten oxide bronze (HTB) adsorbent materials can be achieved by heating in air at temperatures in the range 500 – 1000 °C. Crystalline powdered HTB materials formed by heating at 800 °C show leach characteristics comparable to Cs-containing hot-pressed hollandites in the pH range from 0 to 12. If the Cs-loaded HTB sorbents are pressed into pellets prior to calcination, ceramic monoliths can be prepared. Heating to temperatures in excess of 1250 °C results in the melting of the sorbent to form millimetre-sized crystals of bronzoid phases. Thermal analysis shows that melting of the cation-exchanged tungstate sorbents is initiated at temperatures as low as 850 °C and concludes by 1300 °C. The absence of any significant mass loss immediately after melting, as well as chemical analyses before and after melting, confirm that Cs is not volatilized to any significant extent at the temperatures required to generate durable, coarsely crystalline products. The melted bronzoid product is a multiphase ceramic in which Cs+ remains bound within, and appears to stabilize, the hexagonal bronze phase, even after complete melting at 1300 °C, while elements such as Sr2+ are present within other tungstate phases. The bronzoid chemical system appears capable of accommodating a wide range of other elements. Here we have demonstrated that modification of the sorbent properties by incorporation Mo does not impact severely on the durability of materials prepared below 1000 °C, even when exposed to strong acid (pH=1) and elevated temperature (150 °C). As an example, one-day MCC1 leach rates lower than 1×10−5g/m2/day were measured using demineralized water at 90 °C for Cs-saturated Mo-doped sorbents that had been heated in air at 900 °C, while the fraction of Cs leached from powdered samples in 0.1 M HNO3 solutions at 150 °C for 4 days is only 4×10−3 g/m2/day.
