The results of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) analyses indicated that palladium chloride was adsorbed on a plastic surface coated with a chitosan-containing paint (C-Paint), and was completely reduced to Pd(0) after reduction with dimethylamine-borane. To improve the stability and hardening properties of C-Paint, UV-curable chitosan derivatives, such as N-[3-methoxy-4-(2-hydroxy-3-methacryloyloxypropoxy)phenyl]methylated chitosan and N-(3-methoxy-4-methacryloyloxyphenyl)methylated chitosan, were synthesized. The derivatives showed better affinity for organic solvents. After UV irradiation for 20 s, an acidic solution of these derivatives was transformed to a gel, and the dried films exhibited good palladium(II) adsorption at pH 1.1. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.
