Epub 2013 Mar 15.This study aims to develop a highly selective Lewis base adsorbent to investigate the selective sorption and recovery of Eu(III) and Sm(III) from wastewater. The oxygen and nitrogen donor atoms containing Lewis base N-methyl-N-phenyl-1,10-phenanthroline-2-carboxamide (MePhPTA) ligand was synthesized and subsequently an adsorbent was prepared by direct immobilization onto mesoporous silica. Determined maximum adsorption capacities were 125. Read More
