General description

Nonionic macroreticular resin that adsorbs and releases ionic species through hydrophobic and polar interactions; usually used under isocratic conditions.


Polyaromatic adsorbent for small hydrophobic compounds, surfactants, pharmaceutical manufacturing, phenols, chlorinated organics, pesticide removal and recovery, and organic removal from aqueous food streams.
Amberlite XAD-4 has been used in the clean-up procedure prior to high performance liquid chromatography-evaporative laser scattering detector (HPLC-ELSD) analysis of mycotoxin fumonisins in corn products. It has also been used as a solid sorbent to trap imidacloprid and its metabolite 6-chloronicotinic acid from greenhouse air prior to their determination by HPLC coupled to diode array detector (DAD).

Other Notes

Two particle sizes are available:
Mesh 20-60 are Cat. Nos. 20276, 10358, XAD4
Mesh 20-50 is Cat. No. 06444
