A new phase of the hybrid fibrous ion exchanger, pyridine based cerium(IV) phosphate (PyCeP), has been synthesized in the form of a sheet like paper by mixing ceric sulphate, phosphoric acid and pyridine in a particular ratio to get the material of the optimum ion exchange characteristics. This material has been characterized with the help of ion exchange capacity, elution and concentration and pH titrations behaviour in addition to some physicochemical studies like X-ray diffraction, IR, TG, DTG and SEM studies. The SEM study confirms the fibrous nature of the material while amorphous nature is revealed by its X-ray spectrum.
