Abstract: In this work, a novel Sb(III)-imprinted organic-inorganic hybrid sorbent was synthesized by surface imprinting technique combined with a sol-gel process, and characterized by scanning electron microscopy, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, and N2 adsorption-desorption isotherms. The imprinted sorbent showed the higher capacity and higher selectivity than that of non-imprinted sorbent. The optimal pH range for adsorption of Sb(III) was 3.5-6.5. The imprinted sorbent possessed a rapid kinetics for adsorption of Sb(III) with saturation time of 20 min. After nine adsorption/desorption cycles, no obvious decrease of adsorption capacity was observed. The experimental data showed that the adsorption process obeyed the pseudo-second-order rate mechanism and Langmuir isotherm. The thermodynamic parameters indicated that the adsorption of Sb(III) on the imprinted sorbent was an exothermic and spontaneous process
