Ion exchange experiments were carried out for the removal from aqueous solution of cobalt ions by an Engelhard Titanium Silicates 4 and 10 synthesized from alkaline gels. Selectivity factors were estimated by the construction of ion exchange and Langmuir isotherms and determination of thermodynamic values. It is shown that ETS-10 have a better affinity for Co uptake.
