Scavenging abilities of the ethylenediamine, diethylenetriamine and tris(2-aminoethyl)amine functionalized resins derived from the low cross-linked glycidyl methacrylate-styrene gels in relation to the selected transition metal ions and organic (acid chlorides) electrophiles were explored. The synergetic effects of the solvents were found for the metal ion uptake. In this case a pair of solvents capable simultaneously to swell the hydrophobic core of the resins and interact with the polar amine groups turned out to be a more effective medium for activation of the nucleophilic functionalities of the resins. The resin with ethylenediamine moieties proved to be effective in scavenging acyl chlorides from methylene chloride as well. However, it did not provide complete removing sulphonyl chlorides from the solutions. These organic electrophiles were removed effectively by the resins bearing tris(2-aminoethyl)amine functionalities.
