Abstract: In this work, we describe the preparation and characterization of highly magnetizable chloromethylated polystyrene-based nanocomposite beads. For synthesis optimization, acid-resistant core−shelled maghemite (γ-Fe2O3) nanoparticles are coated with sodium oleate and directly incorporated into the organic medium during a suspension polymerization process. A crosslinking agent, ethylene glycol dimethacrylate, is used for copolymerization with 4-vinylbenzyl chloride to increase the resistance of the microbeads against leaching. X-ray diffraction, inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analysis, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and optical microscopy are used for bead characterization. The beads form a magnetic composite consisting of ∼500 nm-sized crosslinked polymeric microspheres, embedding ∼8 nmγ-Fe2O3 nanoparticles. This nanocomposite shows large room temperature magnetization (∼24 emu/g) due to the high content of maghemite (∼45 wt %) and resistance against leaching even in acidic media. Moreover, the presence of superficial chloromethyl groups is probed by Fourier transform infrared and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The nanocomposite beads displaying chloromethyl groups can be used to selectively remove aminated compounds that are adsorbed on the beads, as is shown here for the molecular separation of 4-aminobenzoic acid from a mixture with benzoic acid. The high magnetization of the composite beads makes them suitable for in situ molecular separations in environmental and biological applications.
