A new chelating fiber, poly(acrylo-amidino diethylenediamine, was synthesized based on polyacrylonitrile fibers in diethylenetriamine with the aid of AlCl3. Complex formation with CrO42 was strongly pH dependent as complexes formed only in the presence of NH3+ and NH2+. In the medium pH region, both ionic and hydrogen bonds were formed between poly(acrylo-amidino diethylenediamine) and the chromate ion, as was confirmed by means of FT-IR spectroscopy.
