Abstract
This work shows that the binding and the release of Cs +, Ba 2+, La 3+ and Th 4+ cations can be controlled by the application of a potential to a polypyrrole doped with polystyrene sulfonate exchange-resin. Radiometric and nuclear techniques were carried out to characterize the reversibility of the process in relation with the exchanged-cation charge.

Résumé
Ces travaux montrent que la fixation et le relargage des cations Cs +, Ba 2+, La 3+ et Th 4+ peuvent être contrôlés par l'application d'un potentiel à une résine de polypyrrole dopée au polystyrène sulfonate. Des mesures radiométriques (comptage $\alpha$) et nucléaires (rétrodiffusion de Rutherford) ont permis de caractériser la réversibilité du procédé, notamment en fonction de la charge de l'ion échangé.


Key words: ions-exchange resin -- polypyrrole -- metallic cation -- electrochemical control
