Abstract: Ion recognition-based separation techniques have received much attention because of their high selectivity for target ions. In this study, we have prepared a novel ion imprinted polymer (IIP) to remove nickel ions with high selectivity. The imprinted polymer was prepared by copolymerization of 2-hydroxy ethyl methacrylate (HEMA) with nickel vinylbenzoate complex in the presence of ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (EGDMA) as a crosslinker. The polymerization was carried out in bulk with free radical initiation using 2-methoxy ethanol as a solvent and porogen. The adsorbed nickel was completely eluted with 15 mL of 1 M HCl. Control polymer was also prepared by similar experimental conditions without using imprint ion. The above synthesized polymers were characterized by surface area measurements, FT-IR, microanalysis and SEM analysis. The adsorption capacity of IIP and CP was found to be 1.51 and 0.65 mmol g-1, respectively. The optimal pH for quantitative enrichment was 6.5. Nature of eluent, eluent concentration and eluent volume were also studied. The relative selectivity factor (αr) values of Ni(II)/Zn(II), Ni(II)/Cu(II) and Ni(II)/Co(II) were 78.6, 111.1 and 91.6, respectively. Five replicate determinations of 30 μg L-1 of Ni(II) gave a mean absorbance of 0.067 with a relative standard deviation of 1.06%. The lowest concentration determined by GTA-AAS below which the recovery becomes non-quantitative is 6 μg L-1. IIP was tested for removal of Ni(II) from sea water sample
