Composite materials formed by the combination of multivalent metal acid salts and organic polymers (polyaniline, polypyrrole, polythiophene, polyacrylamide etc.), provides a new class of ‘organic–inorganic’ hybrid ion exchangers with better mechanical and granulometric properties, good ion-exchange capacity, higher chemical and radiation stabilities, reproducibility and selectivity for heavy metals. This material was characterized using X-ray (XRD and XRF), IR, TGA-DTA and total elemental analysis studies. On the basis of distribution studies, the material has been found to be highly selective for Pb(II). Thermodynamic parameters (i.e. ΔGo, ΔSo and ΔHo) have also been calculated for the adsorption of Pb2+, Cs+, Fe3+, Cd2+, Cu+2, Zn2+, Co2+ and Eu3+ ions on polyacrylamide Sn(IV) molybdophosphate showing that the overall adsorption process is spontaneous and endothermic.
