Water-soluble polymers containing amine, carboxylic acid, and sulfonic acid groups were investigated as polychelatogens through the liquid phase polymer-based retention, LPR technique, under different experimental conditions. The metal ions investigated are: Ag(I), Cu(II), Co(II), Ni(II), Ca(II), Hg(II), and Cr(III). An important effect of the pH and the ligand type was observed on the metal ion retention. As the pH increases the metal ion retention increases. Two types of metal ion interactions are involved: coordination and electrostatic.
