Facile and fast hydrothermal copolymer synthesis of aniline and sulphanilic acid was studied at the presence of ammonium persulphate as an oxidising agent for polymerisation reaction of 1:1 mole ratios of aniline to sulphanilic acid. Physiochemical properties of poly (An-co-SA) copolymer micro particles were scientifically analyse using numerous key techniques. The toxic metal ions spontaneous subtraction efficiency of the poly (An-co-SA) copolymer micro particles was optimized. Results recommended that, the properly controlling the polymerization under the hydrothermal method was a simple but helpful way to significantly improve the conductivity of the copolymers of aniline and sulphanilic acid monomer copolymerized. The poly (An-co-SA) copolymer micro particles could be very appropriate to exclusion and revitalization of metal ions which was toxic to environment from wastewater.
