General description

Amberlite XAD4, a nonpolar absorbent, used for stripping and concentration of organic compounds. It is also used in developing chelating ligands due to its properties like, porosity, high surface area, purity and durability.

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


Amberlite® XAD4 was used:
• in rapid fractionation technique
• as sorbent for HPLC analysis

Polyaromatic adsorbent for small hydrophobic compounds, surfactants, pharmaceutical manufacturing, phenols, chlorinated organics, pesticide removal and recovery, and organic removal from aqueous food streams.

Other Notes

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