An optimum procedure was sought for the fixation of 8-hydroxyquinoline to styrene-ethylene dimethacrylate copolymer (SE-gel) with respect to the capacity of the resulting ion exchanger. The time of establishment of the sorption equilibrium, pH-dependence of the distribution coefficient of Cu2+ ions, sorption isotherm of Cu2+ ions, and the ion exchanger stability were determined.
