Abstract

A new suitable material was synthesized using click reaction between dialkynyl-p-tert-butylcalix[4]arene and poly(vinyl chloride) azide (PVC-N3). This novel dialkynyl-p-tert-butylcalix[4]arene with triazole groups grafted onto PVC polymer (PVC-0.75CX[4]) has an excellent extraction capability for chromium ions from aqueous solutions. It shows a unique ability to extract chromium (VI) ions from aqueous solutions, thanks to the soft cavity, the presence of π-triazole rings and hydrogen bonds. Cr (VI) ion sorption capacity is 95.5% at pH = 3.
