A new composite adsorbent is synthesized by the in situ deposition of a potassium–copper ferrocyanide layer on the surface of modified polyacrylonitrile fibers. The synthesized adsorbent has demonstrated a rapid adsorption and the selectivity in the cesium ion removal from highly mineralized solutions.
