Abstract

A new polymeric resin with glucose sulfonamide functions has been prepared for the extraction of boric acid. This poly (styryl sulfonamide) based resin has been demonstrated to be an efficient sorbent for the removal of boron. The resin had a boron loading capacity of 2.365 mmol.g(-1) and showed reasonably rapid sorption ability. Splitting of sorbed boron can be achieved by simple acid leaching (2M H2SO4).
