Capturing radioactive iodomethane and its vapors is a major challenge due to its low adsorption capacity. Herein, we have developed for the first time a pyridine-entrapped elastic crosslinked polysulfate gel (pyridine/TPC-cPS) as an efficient absorbent for iodomethane capture. Each pyridine-encased TPC-cPS network cell acts as a mini-reactor for salt formation between pyridine and iodomethane. The yield reaches up to 96.65 % and traps saturated iodomethane vapor of 1.573 g g(pyridine/TPC-cPS)(-1) (equivalent to 18.103 g g(TPC-cPS)(-1)), which is the highest capacity reported to date. Both experiments and molecular dynamics simulations reveal that the unusual adsorption of polysulfate for polar aprotic organics can be attributed to the fact that the electrostatic interactions between the polar group (O=S=O) in the polymer backbone and the polar groups in the organic molecules fixed the solvent in the polymer matrix, while the van der Waals forces between the nonpolar groups in the polymer and molecules induced swelling.
