Cesium and strontium are two important fission products and the removal/speciation of these two cations with several inorganic/bio-materials is an interesting topic to discuss. It is to be noted that inorganic materials are found to be fairly effective and efficient in the removal/speciation of these cations. Moreover, these solids are to be found promising as they show fairly good radiation and temperature stability. Hence, they play an important role in the radioactive waste management studies. However, various studies reveal that in addition to inorganic materials various biosorbents can also be employed in the removal/speciation of these ions. But the radiation and temperature stability of these bio-sorbents and dead biomasses are still the topic lying among the researchers to be investigated.
