In this study, regenerated cellulose membrane was used as a filter in liquid-phase polymer-based retention technique. The poly(4-vinyl-1-methylpyridinium bromide), P(BrVMP), was used as extracting reagent of As(V). The role of pH, polymer:As(V) molar ratio, and influence of regenerated cellulose membrane were investigated by washing method. It was observed that the efficient retention was obtained at pH 9 with 20:1 polymer:As molar ratio and it was about 100 % at Z = 10 for P(BrVMP). Experimental data showed that the regenerated cellulose membrane, compared to poly(ethersulfone) membrane, has a capacity to interact with As(V). The maximum retention capacity of P(BrVMP) was determined by enrichment method, and then, using alternately washing and enrichment methods, the charge-discharge process and recovery of P(BrVMP) were performed.
