Selective extraction

By Chemical Engineering |

MPI Technologies AB (Lund, Sweden; edlinks.chemengonline.com/6518-545) is expanding its production capabilities for making molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) so that batch quantities of 3–5 kg/wk will be possible. MIPs are stable polymers in which artificial receptor sites have been created to bind a specific component from a mixture (CE, February 2005, p. 16). The production scaleup will now enable pilot-scale studies to be performed using the solid-phase-extraction sorbent. Up to now, MPI Technologies has primarily supplied gram quantities for R&D purposes. Last month, the firm supplied, for the first time, kilogram quantities to a multinational corporation.
