Abstract: In this study, diisocyanate derivatized ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer, having polymeric chain instead of network structure, was synthesized by the reaction of isophorondiisocyanate with a product gained as a result of the reaction between EVOH and maleic anhydride at 70 °C. Isocyanate groups of last product were converted to –NH2 groups by hydrolysis and FTIR spectrum was proved this group with the peak at 3318 cm-1. Synthesis of this resin is easier than polystyren-divinyl benzene based resin. Analytical study of this resin as an ion exchanger showed that maximum Cu(II) uptake capacity of resin is 0.15 mmol Cu(II) ion/g sorbent, and maximum 93.8% of retained Cu(II) ions can be recovered with 1 M HCl solutions
