Abstract. Inverse vulcanized copolymers have emerged as a promising adsorbent for mercury remediation due the presence of S-S chain in their structure. However, these adsorbents are still suffering from low selectivity, adsorption capacity due to their hydrophobic nature and less functionality. Herein we reported the synthesis of Trizane functionalized inverse vulcanized copolymer using one-pot method by reacting sulfur and 2,4,6-triallyl-1,3,5-trizane and DIB (crosslinker) at 163 oC. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) were used to characterize the resultant copolymers. FTIR spectra of all copolymers shows the absence of C=C bond and C-C=C as there were no peak observed at 1660 and 3005 cm-1. TGA revealed that the produced copolymers are thermally stable and only started to degrade at 200 oC. It can be concluded here that TAC and DIB can react successfully with sulfur to form trizane containing copolymer.
