Hydrogen titanates (H-titanates) of different nanostructures (nanotubes, nanowires, nanosheets) have been synthesized by hydrothermal methods. The europium (III) sorption from aqueous solutions onto nano-sized H-titanates was studied as a function of contact time, pH values, and initial Eu (III) concentration in batch experiments. Reversibility of adsorption of europium has been investigated as well. Nano-sized H-titanates can be used for tri-valent f-elements removal in polluted water treatment due to fast and efficient sorption of Eu (III).
