A chitosan-thioglyceraldehyde Schiff's base cross-linked magnetic resin (CSTG) was prepared and characterized using various instrumental methods. Then, the prepared resin was used for comparative studies on the removal of toxic metal ions like: Hg(2+), Cu(2+) and Zn(2+) from aqueous solutions. The effects of the initial pH value of the solution, contact… (More)
