A new chelating polymeric sorbent as an extractant-impregnated resin (EIR) has been developed using brilliant green (BG) and Amberlite XAD-7 resin. The BG-impregnated resin showed superior binding affinity for Cr(VI) in the presence of many co-existing ions and no considerable interference was observed. The influence of various physicochemical parameters on the recovery of Cr(VI) were optimized by both static and dynamic methods. The Langmuir adsorption isotherm gave a satisfactory fit of the equilibrium data. The kinetic studies performed for Cr(VI) sorption revealed that <45 min was sufficient for reaching equilibrium metal ion sorption. A preconcentration factor of 100 was found for the column-mode extraction. The spectrophotometric determination of eluted Cr(VI) was carried out using quercetin as a selective reagent. The calibration graphs were linear in the range 5.0 x 10(-8) to 4.0 x 10(-7)M with a detection limit of 8 x 10(-9)M. The proposed method has been successfully employed for the analysis of natural water. The recoveries for the Cr(VI) amounts spiked to the samples were >93%, which confirmed accuracy of the measurements.
