To provide an absorption material carrying an extracting reagent, capable of solving such problems of extraction chromatographic resin, a material having both the characteristics of an extracting regent used in solvent extraction method and of ion-exchange resin used in an ion-exchange method, that the migration speed of metal ions to a carried extracting reagent has been slow and that the use efficiency of the carried extracting reagent has been low.
A polymerizable monomer, having an extracting reagent carrying function, is graft-polymerized to the surface of a substrate to carry the extracting reagent and acquire an absorption material of metal ions. A functional group, having the extracting reagent carrying function, may be a hydrophobic group (such as, alkyl amino group, alkyl group, alkyl thiol group, and epoxy group), a hydrophilic group (such as, diol group), or their combination.
