Interest in the development of solvent-impregnated resins (SIRs) and their applications for the separation of metal ions and organic compounds from water in the form of a hybrid polymeric adsorbent material has intensified over the past thirty years. SIRs are particulate adsorbers that possess a combination of the advantageous features of both liquid–liquid extraction and ion exchange and this renders them applicable to a wide range of potential liquid–solid separation and recovery processes. This paper reviews the extensive published literature on methods of synthesis of SIRs, attempts to stabilize hybrid solventimpregnated resins and various applications of SIRs.
