Fast and quantitative manganese sorption by polyamidoamine resins

Abstract

Two poly(amidoamine) crosslinked resins whose repeating units are mimics of L-lysine (LYMA) and of EDTA (LMT85) prove capable of quantitatively and reversibly sorbing manganese ions (Mn2+). Halving times are on the order of 1 min or less, and Mn2+ can be abated to the ppb level.
