Abstract

Chitosan (Ch) was entrapped in polyacrylamide (PAA) by direct polymerization of acrylamide in a suspension of Ch. The adsorptive features of PAA-Ch and Ch were then investigated for pb(2+), UO22+, and Th4+ in view of dependency on ion concentration, temperature, and kinetics. Additional considerations were also given to their ion selectivity and reusability.
