Typical features of Relite ion exchange and adsorbent resins
Basically four main classes of pore structure are composing RELITE products:
Gel type ion exchange resins
It is matter of ion exchangers manufactured by polymerisation of styrene or acrylate with DVB as crosslinker, and subjected to functionalisation. This kind of resins are characterised by a microporous structure able to recover/remove small counter ions from polar solvents. Through them, waters and solute species diffuse into and out of the beads.
Porous ion exchange resins
These resins are characterised by a moderate crosslinking degree. Porous resins have excellent swelling/shrinking stability, high resistance to organic contamination and outstanding decolorizing properties.
Highly porous ion exchange resins
These resins are characterised by high crosslinking, large surface area and pore volume; therefore, they are suitable for large counter ions recovery/removal from both polar and non polar solvents.
These resins are characterised by high crosslinking, large surface area and calibrated pore radius; therefore, they are suitable for recovery/removal and purification of organic molecules.
