The present work proposes the use of Pleurotus ostreatus immobilized on Amberlite XAD-4 as new biosorbent in trace metal determination. The effects of experimental parameters, such as "pH and flow rate of sample solution, amount of solid phase, eluent type, and concentration" on the recovery of the metal ions were investigated. Maximum adsorption of Cr(III), Cd(II) and Cu(II) ions took place in the pH range 4-5. These metal ions can be desorbed with 1M HCl (recovery 95-100%). 0.2g adsorbent amount and 2.5 mL min(-1) flow rate was found to be optimum of all preconcentration experiments. The sorption capacity after 10 cycles of sorption and desorption does not vary more than 2.0%. The influences of the contaminant ions on the retentions of the analytes were also examined. The results showed that P. ostreatus immobilized on Amberlite XAD-4 can be considered as very promising material in trace metal determination. Crown Copyright © 2011. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
