The physicochemical properties and structural characteristics of heavy metal ion adsorbents, such as inorganic adsorbents, organic macromolecule adsorbents and composite adsorbents, are analyzed. The adsorption properties of metal ions commonly used in the present stage are studied, it is found that large heavy metal sludge is produced during processing of these materials. Therefore, the preparation of polymeric adsorbents and adsorption of heavy metal ions in water are studied and reviewed. The research status and development trend of novel heavy metal ion adsorbents are also discussed. Through the combination of modern detection techniques and analytical tools, experiments are carried out to test the preparation of polymeric adsorbents and the adsorption properties to heavy metal ions in water. The experimental results show that there is interaction between the adsorption capacity of polymeric adsorbents and heavy metal ions. Thus, the use of polymer adsorbents can better enhance the adsorption of heavy metal ions in water. This has important theoretical and practical significance for expanding the adsorption mechanism and developing the adsorptive material with excellent performance.
