Abstract : A variety of methods for removing heavy metal ions from wastewater have been developed but because of their low efficiency, further production of toxic sludge or other waste materials, high expense, and lengthy procedures, limited progress has been achieved to date. Polymeric hydrogel has been attracting particular attention for the effective removal of heavy metal ions from wastewater. Here, ionogenic polymeric hydrogels were prepared by free-radical copolymerization of a neutral acrylamide (AAm) monomer with an ionic comonomer in the presence of a suitable initiator and a cross-linker. Different types of ionic comonomers such as strongly acidic: 2-acrylamido-2-methylpropane sulfonic acid, weakly acidic: acrylic acid (AAc), and zwitterionic: 2-methacryloyloxy ethyl dimethyl-3-sulfopropyl ammonium hydroxide with varying amounts were incorporated into the poly(AAm) networks to fabricate the hydrogels …
