Abstract

Adsorptive filter media were developed based on UHMWPE (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene), perlite mineral and sol-gel synthesized silica gel as support and various cyclodextrin oligomers and polymers as active adsorbents. Adsorptive capacity was characterized by dye adsorption before and after Soxhlet extraction in water to check the hydrolytic stability of the structures obtained. Morphological and in some cases spectroscopic studies were made to understand the differences in behaviour. At the present stage the development of such structures hardly exceeds the trial and error approach, nevertheless some promising formulations were found.
