Epub 2016 Feb 10.Removal of silver, lead and cadmium ions from both model solutions and real contaminated water was achieved, in a flow through manner, by using highly porous functionalized poly(glycidyl methacrylate) materials, prepared by the polymerisation of high internal phase emulsions (polyHIPE), with significant sorption differences between metals allowing for selective removal. PolyHIPEs, initially prepared from glycidyl methacrylate as a functional monomer, were functionalized with pentaerythritol tetrakis(3-mercaptopropionate), 1,9-nonanedithiol and 2-aminobenzenethiol via the epoxy ring opening on the polymer supports and applied in a flow-through manner via encasements into dedicated disk holders.
