Abstract: The selectivity of Ionic Imprinted Polymer (IIP) Fe metal ion using functional polymers of eugenol derivatives was undertaken through the adsorption process. The forms of functional polymers were polyeugenol (PE), acetic polieugenoxy acid (PA) and poly tiophen-2-methyl-2-eugenoxy acetate (PFMEA). The purposes of this research were to know the influence of functional groups on the functional polymer of eugenol derivatives to the adsorption selectivity of IIP involving imprint cavity. The method in this research is the Ion Imprinted polymer (IIP) produced a metal ion imprint bound with the polymer, locked by Ethylene dimethacrylate (EDMA) then removed from the polymer to produce imprint selective to the ion imprinted. The adsorption selectivity of Fe metal ions in PA was higher than PE and PFMEA. Analysis of surface area shows that IIP PA has larger surface area compared with NIP. The adsorption selectivity of Fe was higher on Fe-Cr than Fe-Cd and Fe-Pb.
