The aim of this project is to create a new concept in the strategy of designing chelating resins with temperature-dependent selectivity. The work is directed towards synthesizing ion exchanges applicable for the use in the wasteless decontamination processes to the removal of toxic metals such as Pb, Cd, Hg, etc. from industrial effluents ans waste waters applying parametric pumping, thermal ion-exchange fractionation and allied techniques allowing for the design of ecologically clean separation processes. In our case, we will predict esperimentally the behaviour of these materials by a systematic characterization of the termodynamic parameters and chemical selectivity of the adsorption-desorption reactions as a function of the rigidity of the attachment of the chemical moiety to the solid material.
