Abstract

Current developments in the applications of submicron-sized polymeric particles in separation processes are discussed. The surface area of submicron-sized polymeric particles (SSPP) is 2000-5000 times that of commonly available polymeric particles (mean diameter 0. 4-1 mm). The high surface area gives the SSPP high adsorption capacity. Applications in adsorption, cell debris removal and liquid-liquid extraction are reviewed.
