Adsorbents of Organic Pollutants

Organic insecticides and herbicides are commonly used to keep crops healthy and bountiful. But these compounds get into the water system and impact water quality and health.

These pollutants include common pesticides and herbicides used in the agricultural industry as well as complex organics such as aromatic and polyaromatic compounds (phenol, naphthalene, fluorene, anthracene, acenaphthene, pyrene and fluoranthene).

Purolite adsorbents for removing and recovering organic pollutants from water and wastewater include:
