Ion exchange Emulsion Resins:
Now A DAYS there are many inventions done in various synthesis criteria so that molecular chemistry became Chemistry with BETTER PERFORMANCE.
Oil in water Emulsions are the most Eco-friendly formulations, that are pioneered in industrial chemistry to save our green earth. To control pollution and the temperature rise of earth, anyhow we have to reduce the use of volatile petrochemicals without compromising the needs of the living beings.
Emulsions can reduce the use of volatile hazard class more than 50% with superior quality products with extra superior results in a Eco-friendly way and minimum wastage. Wastage of these processes can be treated as Best out of waste because WATER is the main phase of such synthesis which is universal solvent for all salts ,these reactivity lead most of the impurities to precipitate out from waste.
Now a days, Ion exchange emulsion resins are having the most interesting chemistry which help a lot by playing an important role in water treatment research experiments.
Ion Exchange resins are insoluble substances which have in their molecular structure acidic or basic radicals that can be exchanged.
The positive or negative ions fixed on these radicals are replaced by ions of the same sign in solution in the liquid in contact with them.
The ion exchange is complete without deterioration or solubilisation of changing the total number of ions in the liquid before the exchange
Now days, the ion exchange substances are used almost exclusively under the name of emulsion resins. There are two categories of resins:
The emulsion resins of the gel type : Gel type resins have a natural porosity limited to inter-molecular distances. It is a microporous type structure.
The emulsion resins of the macro-porous or loosely cross-linked type: Macroporous type resins have an additional artificial porosity which is obtained by adding a substance designed for this purpose.
Their basic structure is identical to the macro-molecular structure is obtained in both cases by co-polymerization. The difference between them lies in their porosity.
The exchanger is known as monofunctional if there is only one variety of radicals and it is called polyfunctional if the molecule contains various type of radicals.
