Guarantetraethylenepentamine (GTEPA) resin is synthesized by incorporating tetraethylenepentamine group onto guaran by a modified Porath's method of functionalization of polysaccharides. The distribution coefficient of Fe 2+ , Co 2+ , Ni 2+ , Cu 2+ , Zn 2+ , Cd 2+ and Pb 2+ on GTEPA resin at different pHs have been systematically studied. Finally the heavy metal ions were eluted quantitatively with different strength of acids.
