Tritium is one of the hydrogen isotopes and can be produced either by a cosmic ray or human activities such as waste from nuclear facilities and chemical industries. Recent studies have shown that tritium can be bounded with organic matter and possibly with nanoparticles in aquatic systems. This form of tritium known as organically bound tritium can be trapped in sediment and lead to the potential of ecotoxicity. This paper will give insight how the tritium can be absorbed by modeled sediment and can be further absorbed with help of organic matter present in the system.
