Project Description

fullerene-purification-chromatographyFullerenes as advanced materials has broad potential applications in various industries. Its unique cage structure leads to interesting and extraordinary magnetic, superconductive, optical and catalytic properties. However, the application of fullerenes has been restricted because of the difficulty in the synthesis and especially purification of fullerenes.

EPRUI Biotech has designed and developed EPRUI-FLC chromatographic resin specifically for the isolation and purification of fullerenes. EPRUI-FLC resin is based on advanced polymerization technique and unique surface modification technology. Based on monodisperse resin microparticles with optimal pore structure and binding functional group, EPRUI-FLC is an ideal chromatography media for separation and purification of fullerenes with high efficiency.
