Abstract: This study is considered simple and cheap method for removal heavy ions from aqueous solutions. Chelating resins have been introduced to be appropriate materials for the recovery of heavy metals in water remedies. A chelating resin based upon modified poly(styrene-alt-maleic anhydride)(SMA) with Melamine was synthesized. This modified resin was further reacted with 1,2- diaminoethan in the attendance of ultrasonic irradiation for the provision of a tridimensional chelating resin on the nanoscale for the recovery of heavy metals from aqueous solutions. The adsorption behavior Iron (II) ions was explored by the synthesis of chelating resins at variouspH’s. The gotten resins shown a good inclination for the elimination the Iron (II)ions from aqueous solution, even at acidic pH. The resin was characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction analysis. The adsorption process of Iron (II)on SMA, SMA-M and SMA-M-P were tested with Langmuir isotherm model and the isotherm constants were deduced from this.
