N,N'-bis-(α-methylsalicylidene)-2,2-dimethyl-1,3-propanediimine (SBTD) modified silica gel was prepared and used as sorbent for solid phase extraction of Cr(III) ions from aqueous solution. This sorbent showed a high sorption affinity for Cr(III) while recovery of Cr(VI) was very low. The analyte ion
