We demonstrate synthesis of water insoluble, novel copolymer P-A1 from condensation of glyoxal dihydrazone and glyoxal dihydrazone bis(dithiocarbamate) monomers having high capacity to remove metal ions from aqueous solution. The presence of a high atomic percentage of nitrogen and sulfur atoms in P-A1 leads to strong ligating ability with metal ions. The monomers and the polymer have been characterized by FTIR, UV-Visible spectroscopy, CHNS elemental analysis, NMR, MALDI-MS, and TG/DTA. As a proof of concept, the P-A1 is tested for its ability to remove heavy metal ions Cu2+, Co2+, Fe2+, Ni2+, Mn2+, and CrO (7) (2-) from aqueous solutions. P-A1 efficiently removed metals ions from the metal solutions. The highest absorption ability has been observed toward the iron salts where 0.969 g metal salt is absorbed by 1 g polymer. This study has implication for inexpensive and efficient polymer for purification of water.
