The four aliphatic polyamines evaluated include ethylenediamine (EDA), diethylenetriamine (DETA), triethylenetetramine (TETA), and tetraethylenepentamine (TEPA). Various analytical tools, including elemental analysis, BET, and XAFS (XANES+EXAFS), were used to characterize the adsorbents in terms of their immobilized amine contents, polyamine densities, and their coordination structures for the adsorption of a typical heavy metal ion, Cu2+. It was found that the immobilized polyamine densities followed the order of EDA>DETA>TETA>TEPA, but the immobilized amine contents followed the opposite order of TEPA>TETA>DETA>EDA. XAFS analysis for the adsorbents after copper ion adsorption revealed that the average coordination number of copper ion with the nitrogen atoms (in the range between 3 and 4) followed the order of DETA||Source Title:||Journal of Colloid and Interface Science||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/87513||ISSN:||00219797||DOI:||10.1016/j.jcis.2010.01.057|
