Zirconium phosphate (α-type), and zirconium phosphate-phosphite, and their silica containing forms were prepared. The products of syntheses and their purities and crystallinities were characterized by XRD diffraction. Thereafter the samples were irradiated with γ-rays (to 3 x 106 Gy absorbed dose), after which irradiation the samples were again characterized. Comparison of the diffractograms reveals that irradiation does not result in detectable structural changes. Thus, application of these materials as sorbents and as ion exchangers is suggested in processes taking place under irradiation.
