Abstract

Column studies were performed to evaluate the performance of modified zeolite-Y with ion Fe (zeolite-FeY) in removing As(III), As(V), Se(IV) and Se(VI) from groundwater. The removal capacities for zeolite-FeY was carried out on arsenic and selenium species in aqueous solution by co-precipitation technique with DBDTC-Pp complex in the pH range of 1.5-2.5 followed by the neutron activation analysis (NAA) using a TRIGA-MkII reactor with an average flux of 2.1 × 1012 neutrons cm-2 s-1 and inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) technique as comparison. The accuracy between the results obtained from both techniques were compared and evaluated.
