Abstract: A novel indium(III) ion imprinting polymer (IIP) for the selective separation of indium(III) ions from complex aqueous solution had been prepared by surface imprinting technique using vinylphosphonic acid and allyl mercaptan as the functional monomer and indium sulfate as a template. The adsorbent was characterized on the basis of infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET), thermogravimetric analysis (TG) and energy dispersive X-ray spectrometer (EDX). The indium(III) ions adsorption behavior on the In(III)-IIP was investigated in detail by batch and column experiments. Sorption equilibrium was achieved within 30 min, the maximum static and dynamic adsorption capacities were 60.62 mg g-1 and 48.72 mg g-1, respectively. The kinetic study indicated that the adsorption process could be better described by the pseudo-second-order model, and experimental data could be better fitted relied on the Langmuir adsorption isotherm model. The In(III)-IIP exhibited excellent selectivity for In(III) against the interfering ions, including K(I), Ca(II), Na(I), Mg(II), Mn(II), Cd(II), Ni(II), Co(II), Pb(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) and the separation factors of IIP in the binary metal mixture solutions for In(III)/Cu(II), In(III)/Pb(II), In(III)/Zn(II) and In(III)/Fe(II) were calculated to be 41, 212, 37 and 69, respectively. After six adsorption-desorption cycles, no obvious loss in adsorption capacity was observed, indicating that the adsorbent had a high stability and reusability. Moreover, the In(III)-IIP was applied to the selective separation of indium(III) ions from the real wastewater with satisfactory results
