A polystyrene divinylbenzene resin (Amberlite XAD-16) functionalized by 3-((E)-(2-amino phenyl imino) methyl) phenol has been synthesized and its sorption properties have been investigated for preconcentration of Fe(II), Cu(II), Mn(II), and Zn(II) in natural water samples. The new resin (XAD-16-PAN) was characterized by thermo gravimetric analysis and infrared spectrometry. The analytical parameters including pH, sample volume etc. for the quantitative recoveries of the analyte ions using XAD-16-APMP resin were investigated. The effects of alkaline, earth alkaline ions and some anions on the sorption of analyte ions were also examined. The recovery values were greater than 95%.
