Nanometer TiO2 supported on silica gel (supported nanometer TiO2) was prepared by Sol-Gel method. The product was characterized using XRD and SEM. The adsorption behavior of supported nanometer TiO2 towards Cd2+, Cr3+, Cu2+and Mn2+ was investigated by ICP-AES. It was found that the adsorption percentages of the metal ions studied were more than 90% in pH 8.0~9.0, and 0.5 mol/L HNO3 was sufficient for complete elution. The adsorption capacity of supported nanometer TiO2 for Cd2+, Cr3+, Cu2+and Mn2+ was found to be 8.3, 13.1, 12.6 and 5.1 mg/g, respectively. A method using supported nanometer TiO2 as adsorbent coupled with ICP-AES has been developed for the separation/preconcentration and determination of Cd2+, Cr3+, Cu2+and Mn2+in environmental sample.
