A novel chelating resin using chitosan as a base material, ethylenediamine-type chitosan, has been synthesized for the first time in the present study, and applied to the collection/concentration of ultratrace amounts of silver in environmental water samples. In the present study, ultratrace amounts of silver collected on the resin were eluted and determined by ICP-MS. The resin packed in a 1 mL mini column could adsorb silver selectively and quantitatively at a flow rate of 2 mL min(-1) in the wide pH range from 1 to 8, and silver adsorbed on the resin could be easily recovered by passing 1 M nitric acid as an eluent into the column. High adsorption capacity for silver at pH 5, 0.37 mmol mL(-1) of the resin, was achieved, and t(1/2) of the adsorption is less than 5 min. The effect of chloride on the collection of silver was examined by varying chloride concentrations from 10(-4) to 0.75 M; the results showed that the present resin can be used for the collection/concentration of ultratrace amounts of silver in natural waters, as well as seawater. To ensure the accuracy and the precision of the method, CASS-4 near shore seawater reference material from the NRCC has been analyzed. This is not a certified SRM for silver, but has been used for comparative silver analysis by several groups, who report very similar results to those that are reported here. The developed method using ethylenediamine-type chitosan resin gives 0.7 pg mL(-1) of the detection limit when 50-fold enrichment was used. The proposed method was successfully applied to the determination of silver in tap, river, and seawater samples.
