Ion Exchange Sorbents for Metals Extraction- Analysis & Sorbent Use Selection Guide

January 19, 2016

The use of ion-exchange sorbents for the preconcentration, separation and determination of metal ions is well established in the literature. Selection of an appropriate sorbent ensures both high efficiency in metal chelating while minimizing the mass of sorbent required for a particular analytical task. A high efficiency sorbent means that a smaller bed mass may be used thereby reducing the quantity of solvent required for elution yielding greater analytical sensitivity.
