A systematic study on interaction of Pd(II) with 7-iodo-8-hydroxyquinoline-5 sulfonic acid (Ferron) and the strongly basic anion exchange resin Purolite A-500 in its chloride form was carried out. It was found that for Ferron/resin ratio ranging from 0.15 to 0.70 mmol g-1, the retention of chelating reagent on the investigated ion exchanger is practically quantitative. The sorption increase of Pd(II) on Ferron-loaded resin was observed for higher values of parameters like: pH solution, initial concentration and temperature. It was observed that the equilibrium distribution of Pd(II) between sorbent and solution could adequately be described by the Langmuir model with two parameters. The thermodynamic quantities characteristic of Pd(II) sorption process (DG = -18.4 kJ mol-1; ΔH = 11.7 kJ mol-1; ΔS = 104.4 J mol-1 K-1) suggest a strong affinity between Ferron-loaded resin and the tested cation.
