Adsorption conditions of 14 lanthanide ions (Ln) on silica-based adsorbent with immobilized derivative of 2,6-pyridinedicarboxylic acid (SiO2-PdCA) were studied. It has been demonstrated that SiO2-PdCA quantitatively removes all lanthanides from their multi-element aqueous solution at pH ≥ 2.5. Solutions of strong mineral acids and several complexing agents, such as EDTA, 5-sulfosalicylic, citric, α-hydroxyisobutyric, and ascorbic acids were investigated as eluents. It was demonstrated that complete (90-100 %) elution of lanthanides from SiO2-PdCA can only be achieved with 2 mol L-1 HNO3 acid, while 0.01 mol L-1 EDTA solution elutes up to 90 % of light and 100 % of heavy Ln3+. Reusability tests demonstrate that SiO2-PdCA reversibly adsorbs Ln ions, and after five successive adsorption/desorption cycles no decrease in the adsorption capacity of SiO2-PdCA was detected.
