Hydrogen, as a proton, exists as solvated ions in protic acids. Acidity can be removed from water-based solutions with an acid absorber like AMBERLYST™ A21 Anion Exchange Resin.
Acidity can be removed from organic solvents with AMBERLYST A21 DRY Resin. This resin has been dried to 0.3% or less retained moisture to optimize the resin’s contact with the organic solvent and minimize issues with solvent compatibility.
Removing Lubricants from Compressed Gasses
Since H2 gas is often used in a compressed form, it may be contaminated with compressor lubricants.
DOWEX OPTIPORE™ V493 Polymeric Adsorbent has been shown to work well to remove these compressor lubricants from compressed gas streams1and DOWEX OPTIPORE V503 Polymeric Adsorbent could also be tested for comparison.
