Advanced materials reliant on cross-linked magnetic poly (ionic liquids) (PILs) have been widely utilized in environmental applications for water purification. The present work demonstrates our preparation of a new magnetic cross-linked PIL based on quaternized 4-vinyl-pyridine-co-acrylamide (QVP/AAm). The chemical composition, thermal stability, magnetic properties, morphology, particle sizes, and zeta potential of the magnetic QVP/AAm composites were investigated. Fast adsorption and desorption kinetics, high adsorption capacity, rapid magnetic separation, and the absence of secondary pollution in the adsorption process make QVP/AAm-Fe3O4 a highly effective adsorbent for the elimination of anionic acidic Congo red contaminants from industrial wastewater.
