Simultaneous usage of cationic and anionic thermosensitive hydrogels was shown to positively contribute to adsorption of heavy metal ions. The potential capacity for recovering heavy metal ions from an aqueous solution was enhanced by incorporating relatively hydrophobic moiety to the hydrogels, which was ascribed to the increase in the desorption on elevating the temperature over the lower critical swelling temperature (LCST). N-tert-butylacrilamide was added into the hydrogels to increase its desorption potential. The addition of N-tert-butylacrylamide does not significantly affect hydrogels’ adsorption ability. Moreover, the adsorption-desorption cycle was not diminished by repeating the temperature swing above the critical temperature at which the volume phase transition was induced.
