Abstract

Two chelating resins, containing trithiocarbonate and dithiocarbamate groups, respectively, were synthesized efficiently from a commercially available cross-linked chloromethylated polystyrene. The pH dependence of the metal extraction for Pb(II), Cu(II), Ni(II) and Co(II) was studied. Both resins exhibited high affinity toward Pb(II) and Cu(II). The sorptive capacity of trithiocarbonate and dithiocarbasate resin with respect to Cu(II) was 3.5 and 4.4.
