Method and apparatus for extracting target molecules from a liquid by binding them to an activated polymer surface
Publication date: 2015
An apparatus and method for producing the apparatus that is used to bind one or more different types of target molecules to a polymer surface that has been treated, and thereby activated, according to the method. A three or four step process to activate the surface is described. After activation, a fifth step immerses the activated surface into a liquid which binds a quantity of the target molecules to the polymer surface by chemical binding and/or by molecularly imprinted polymers and/or by modified carbon nanotubes. The method is used to convert an inert polymer surface into the activated surface. Either ion exchange binding (3 step process) or binding by the use of molecularly imprinted polymers and/or carbon nanotubes (four step process) or both are simultaneously used to provide the apparatus that is capable of binding and thereby extracting a quantity of the target molecules from the liquid.
