New polymeric adsorbents prepared by radiation-induced graft polymerization are superior to conventional adsorbents in terms of resolution in elution chromatography and dynamic binding capacity in the flow-through mode. However, currently used adsorbents cannot be easily replaced with our new graft-type adsorbents. Thus far, graft-type adsorbents have not been considered as alternatives. This chapter provides information indicating that graft-type adsorbents may be useful for separation. When a new need for separation that cannot be easily met using existing adsorbents arises, then graft-type adsorbents will be available as promising candidates to meet this need.
