Abstract: A polymeric sorbent with high selectivity towards cobaltous ions was synthesised for the first time, using the technique of metal ion imprinting. The Co(II) imprinted polymer was found to sorb cobaltous ions present in ppb levels while completely rejecting ferrous ions present in large excess. The imprinted polymer has been demonstrated to selectively remove cobalt under typical PHWR decontamination conditions. The selectivity of the polymer has also been investigated through theoretical calculation of the formation energies of metal ion complexes of synthesised imprinted sorbents, which showed relative instability of ferrous complex within the sorption site.
Template and target information: cobalt ion, Co(II)
