This new polymer-based material, made from bio-sourced molecules, is able to reversibly adsorb organic molecules of any polarity, including highly polar molecules such as glyphosate. It can be used to trap all organic molecules within an aqueous or gaseous environment (e.g. pollutants, small biological molecules, pharmaceutical drugs…), and to release these molecules in a controlled environment through thermic desorption or with solvent, depending on the final use (physicochemical analyses…). 100g polymer are required to capture 1g molecules. This material can be produced in different forms (wire, membrane, granules, powder…), and can be used as a coating of various objects (bar magnet, disks…).
