Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) pollution in aqueous environment is a problem of global concern. A novel chitosan-based molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) was prepared by crosslinking with epichlorohydrin (ECH) in the presence of PFOS as the template. During the preparation of the MIP adsorbents, the template amount and crosslinking agents significantly… CONTINUE READING
