New carrier materials

In order to increase the efficiency of a separation technique, carrier materials with very high capacities and selectivities are necessary. These are inter alia defined by the structure of the carrier material (specific surface, porosity) and the physico-chemical properties. In sum, the matrix itself, but also the functionalization, which generally consists of the chemical activation of the matrix, the introduction of spacers and the bonds of a selective ligand, are responsible for this.
