A novel magnetic ion imprinted polymers(MWNTs/MIIPs) based on aniline functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotubes was synthesized using Cd2+ as the template, methacrylic acid as the functional monomer and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate as the cross-linker. The MWNTs/MIIPs were characterized by scanning electron microscopy and infrared spectroscopy in detail. Adsorption studies indicate that the MWNTs/MIIPs show excellent adsorption and selective recognition ability towards Cd2+ with a maximum adsorption capacity of 16.96 mg/g. And the selectivity factor of the MWNTs/MIIPs toward Cd2+/Cu2+, Cd2+/Ni2+, Cd2+/Pb2+and Cd2+/Cr3+ is 2.03, 2.35, 2.16 and 2.13, respectively. Combined with atomic absorption spectral analysis technology, the MWNTs/MIIPs were applied for the rapid separation and enrichment of trace Cd2+ in rice.
