In this work a facile hydrothermal route has been employed to prepare a multiwall carbon nanotube wrapped in a chelating resin. 8-Hydroxyquinoline and p-formaldehyde were used as monomer and linker for polymer synthesis. The prepared composite was employed as an efficient adsorbent for lead adsorption and preconcentration from various matrices. Effective parameters on lead adsorption have been optimized by central composite design. Results showed that equilibrium adsorption was obtained at pH = 4, with a shacking time of 15 min and adsorbent dosage of 15 mg. Isotherm study showed that the sorbent has adsorbent capacity of 250 mg g−1; moreover, the process followed a Langmuir isotherm model. Thermodynamic investigation confirmed that lead adsorption is spontaneous, as well as follows endothermic path.
