    3-Mercaptopropyl functionalized SBA-15 (SH-SBA) and 3-mercaptopropyl functionalized ethenylene bridged periodic mesoporous organosilica (SH-PMO) were included in a Diffusive Gradients in Thin film (DGT) probe and compared to similar commercially available resins also containing thiol functional groups, such as Sumichelate Q10R (SQR) and 3-mercaptopropyl functionalized silica gel (SH-KG), and also to the Chelex-100 resin for the determination of labile Hg concentrations. An agarose gel was used as the diffusive gel because the classic polyacrylamide gel shows more than 20% of Hg adsorption. According to our results, the Chelex-100 resin presents a much lower affinity for Hg than the thiol based resins. The non-linear accumulation profile of mercury with time for the Chelex-100 resin makes it in fact impossible to use Fick's law for estimating the diffusion coefficient of Hg. The 4 other resins all show a linear accumulation profile of Hg with time. Although the highest accumulation rate is observed for SH-PMO followed by SQR, SH-SBA and SH-KG, these values do not differ very much.
