AmberLite™ Ion Exchange Resins
AmberLite™ XAD™16N is a nonionic, hydrophobic, crosslinked polymer with adsorptive properties derived from a unique macroporous structure, high surface area, and an aromatic surface. AmberLite™ XAD™16N adsorbent can be used to adsorb hydrophobic molecules from polar solvents and volatile organic compounds from vapor streams. It is an excellent choice for the adsorption of organic substances of relatively low to medium molecular weight. Example applications include polyphenol extraction, antibiotic purification, adsorption of water-soluble steroids, enzymes, amino acids, and protein, and removal of problem non-polar compounds, such as phenols or color bodies, from polar solvents, juices, and aqueous streams.
AmberLite™ Ion Exchange Resins are available in a very wide range of chemical compositions and polymer structures and have been used for decades in a high-value applications including water treatment in industrial and power generation plants, drinking water, food processing, chemical processing, bioprocessing, and pharmaceutical formulations.
