  Abstract  
  Chlorinated cellulose was chemically modified with ethylene-1,2-diamine followed by pentane-2,4-dione to yield a synthesized biopolymer that was applied for divalent cation sorption from aqueous solution. The metals gave sorption capacities at the solid/liquid interface of 2.32 ± 0.06, 1.85 ± 0.02, 1.70 ± 0.04 and 1.65 ± 0.02 mmol g-1 for Cu2+, Co2+, Ni2+ and Zn2+, respectively. The isotherms were adjusted to the Langmuir, the Freundlich and the Temkin sorption models. The quantitative cation/base center interactions were calorimetrically determined to give exothermic enthalpies of – (5.48 ± 0.03), – (2.89±0.01), – (1.67±0.02) and – (3.44±0.01) kJ mol-1, negative Gibbs energies of – (16.3±0.7), – (18.8±0.7), – (17.5±0.7) and – (18.3±0.7) kJ mol-1, and positive entropies of 36±2, 53±2, 53±2 and 49±2 J mol-1 K-1 for the same sequence of cations. These favorable thermodynamic data suggest that the synthesis involving cellulose produces a new useful material for cation removal from the environment.
