Oxycellulose has been applied as a collector for the following metal-ion contaminants of organic solvents and of different organic compounds: Cu2+, Fe3+, Ni2+, Pb2+, Zn2+. From 100 ml of solvent 1-20 μg of ions have been collected with 5 mg of oxycellulose. The solutions of the organic compounds were 1-3%. The water content of the solvents has a marked effect on the collection. By repeated collection an ion can be removed quantitatively.
