Polymer supported core-shell type iminodipropylene glycol functions have been shown to be efficient in chelation with boric acid and can be used for removal of boric acid at ppm levels. Dehydrochlorinated poly(vinyl chloride) (DHPVC) polymeric sorbent was synthesized and graft copolymerization of glycidyl methacrylate(GMA) onto DHPVC was carried out using ATRP method. The epoxy rings in grafted PGMA reacted with excess of ethylenediamine to give an amine containing sorbent Reaction of the latter with glycidol gives corresponding sorbent with iminopropylene glycol functions.
