Advanced Separations by Specialized Sorbents opens a new window into sorbent materials, presenting fundamental principles for their syntheses and adsorption properties. The book presents advanced techniques used to create specialized sorbents with a wide range of functions that can be used to enhance the separation and/or purification of useful bioactive compounds, heavy metals, dyes, and other substances. It discusses the most recent developments in the field of separation processes, covering specialized sorbents such as monolith cryogels, composite hydrogels, metal-impregnated ion exchangers, and molecularly imprinted polymers. The book provides a comprehensive discussion of the selectivity in separation processes by composite materials based on synthetic polymers/biopolymers and inorganic particles. It is a comprehensive resource for academic and research scientists as well as students interested in the preparation, characterization, and application of specialized sorbents.
