In the present work, we investigated the multielemental elution behavior of metal ions absorbed on iminodiacetic acid (IDA) chelating resin by using hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) as an eluent. As a result, V(V), Mo(VI), W(VI), Nb(V) and Ta(V) were efficiently eluted by H(2)O(2). In contrast, other metal ions were rarely recovered. The oxidation states of V(V), Mo(VI), and W(VI) were not changed through the H(2)O(2) eluting process, checked by X-ray photoelectron analysis. In addition, the UV-vis adsorption spectra and IR spectra of V(V), Mo(VI) and W(VI) in the H(2)O(2) eluent suggested the formation of metal-peroxo complexes through H(2)O(2) elution. The desorption of these metal ions from IDA functional groups is explained in term of destabilization along with the coordination of peroxo-ligands to the V(V)-, Mo(VI)- and W(VI)-IDA complexes, and a decrease in the adsorption capacity by electrostatic repulsion between dissociated carboxylic groups of IDA and the oxoanions in the neutral pH shown in 30 wt% H(2)O(2). When this method was applied to the selective separation of V(V), Mo(VI) and W(VI) from other metals in an acid soluble fraction of fly-ash, 83.4 ± 2.5% of V(V), 88.1 ± 3.3% of Mo(VI), and 69.3 ± 5.4% of W(VI) were recovered in a 30 wt% H(2)O(2) eluent.
