18.5.1 Ion Exchange Equilibrium

For a simplified view of ion exchange equilibrium for binary ion exchange assume the equilibrium constant can be determined by the law of mass action. Let A represent the hydrogen ion and B the sodium ion. For monovalent ion exchange

A+ + RB + X = AR + B+ + X

illustrated in Eq. (18-36), the mass action equilibrium expression simplifies to

where we have assumed the local concentrations of co-ion X in the interior of the resin are both identical (and very low) in the numerator and denominator and hence cancel. (These concentrations are very low in the resin because of a phenomenon known as Donnan exclusion—the ...
