Polymer and dye interaction leading to polymer-dye complex formation exhibits many interesting and important practical features. For this purpose, dicarboxylic acid containing resin was prepared in two steps starting from poly (styrene-divinyl benzene) (PS-DVB) (10% crosslinking) based beads with a particle size of 400-590 μm, according to the synthetic protocol; chlorosulfonation, sulfamidation with iminodiacetic acid. Dye extraction experiments were carried out by contacting wetted resin samples with aqueous dye solutions at room temperature. Capacities were determined by colorimetric analysis of the residual dye content. Dye sorption capacity of the resin was found to be (0.67-0.63 g g-1 resin). This material is also able to remove the cationic dyes completely even from highly diluted aqueous dye solutions.
