Abstract

The use of elastic polyurethane foam as a support for chloranil was proved successful. Reductions of cerium(IV), vanadium(V) and iron(II) on foam-filled columns were carried out quantitatively and rapidly. The effect of flow-rate and temperature on the reduction of each metal ion was examined in detail. Cerium(IV) was reduced quantitatively on passing through the foam-redox column at flow-rates of 2-11 ml min-1 at room temperature. The reduction of vanadium(V) and iron(III) was slower; complete reduction occurred only at flow-rates up to 4 and 2 ml min-1 for V(V) and Fe(III), respectively. At 35°, however, it was possible to use flow-rates of 7 and 6 ml min-1 for the quantitative reduction of V(V) and Fe(III), respectively.
