    Abstract

    Highly selective materials and effective technologies are needed to meet the increasingly stronger drinking water standards for targeted ionic species. Inorganic ion exchangers based on individual and mixed-metal hydrous oxides (or mixed adsorbents that contain inorganic ion exchangers in their composition) are adsorptive materials that are capable of lowering the concentrations of anionic contaminants, such as H2AsO4 , H3AsO3, F, Br, BrO3, HSeO4,HSeO3 and H3BO3, to 10 µg/L or less. To achieve a higher selectivity towards arsenate, a new ion exchanger based on Mg–Al hydrous oxides was developed by a novel, cost-effective and environmentally friendly synthesis method via a non-traditional (alkoxide-free) sol-gel approach.
