Acrylamide, 8-hydroxyquinoline, and furfural were condensed using an acid catalyst to make 8-HQAF copolymer resin. Various physicochemical techniques were used to characterise the produced copolymer. Numerous characterization techniques, including elemental analysis, UV–Visible, 1H NMR, FTIR, XRD, and SEM were employed to evaluate the structure and properties of the copolymer resin. A measurement of the cation interchange capability was completed, and the influence of pH and metal ion concentration on the capability of ion exchange was investigated. Using the batch equilibration approach, we also investigated the ratio of cation exchange and the coefficient of distribution in EDTA medium at a range of different pH values.
