Abstract:
This thesis is concerned with applying engineering principles to the use of polymeric nanoporous adsorbents for use in blood purification to obtain original knowledge. Styrene divinylbenzene copolymer nanoporous adsorbents offer a potential means to remove middle molecular (MM) sized molecules when in direct contact with blood. (Continues...).
