    The adsorption of iodine on Linde Union Carbide 13X molecular sieves is
    investigated at 30'C for iodine concentrations in dry nitrogen between 6 and 40 vpm. In this range of concentrations the capacity of these sieves remains constant at about 0.63g 12/g M.S.
    The dynamical behaviour of this adsorption on a 5 cm diameter bed is derived from
    break-through curves determined from continuous 7-counting of the traced iodine outlet concentration. The break-through lower than 50 % can be evaluated by applying surface-reaction-kinetics-control on the constant pattern model.
