A novel phosphoramidate-functionalized polymeric resin was synthesized by anchoring diethyl (3-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)propyl)phosphoramidate group with chloromethylated polystyrene divinylbenzene resin. The grafted resin was characterized using elemental analysis, Fourier transform infrared, solid-state 31P NMR energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopies, and thermogravimetric analysis. The surface morphology of the functionalized resin was investigated using scanning electron microscopy and the surface area was measured with Brunauer–Emmett–Teller analysis. Sorption affinities of the functionalized resin towards actinides such as Th(IV) and U(VI) were determined under various concentrations of nitric acid solution (0.01–6 mol L−1). Desorption of the actinides from the loaded resin was performed using a solution of 0.01 mol L−1 nitric acid. Reusability of the grafted resin was studied over various successive cycles and the stability of the functional groups on the synthesized resin was monitored using various analytical techniques. © 2017 Society of Chemical Industry. © 2017 Society of Chemical Industry
