Abstract

An ion imprinted polymer (IIP) based on aniline-formaldehyde was synthesized and then modified with extra aniline as cross-linker in the presence and absence of Sr (II) as the template to produce ion imprinted poly(aniline-formaldehyde) (IIPAF) and non imprinted poly(aniline-formaldehyde) (NIPAF). The sorbent was characterized by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy and was used for solid phase extraction. The kinetics of the sorption was analyzed using the pseudo-first order and pseudo-second order kinetic models. The equilibrium adsorption data of Sr (II) on synthetic polymer were analyzed by Langmuir, Freundlich, Temkin and Redlich-Peterson models. The thermodynamic parameters were determined using the equilibrium constant values obtained at different temperatures. The results showed the negative values of ?G? and positive ?H? which indicated that the Sr (II) adsorption process is spontaneous and endothermic. The method was applied for strontium ions determination from Tap water samples.
