Acrylic-based

The weakly basic anion exchange resins use either a polystyrene or polyacrylic ester frame and a primary-ternary amino group as the functional group. Although the anion of a salt like NaCl or Na2SO4 cannot be exchanged, the exchange of an anion of a mineral acid such as HCl and H2SO4, or the salt of a weak base like NH44Cl can be carried out.

Type I Structure:  Strongly basic anion exchange resin

An amino functional group is incorporated into the anion exchange resin enabling the exchange of anions like the Cl- ion and the SO4-- ion. Strongly basic anion exchange resins and weakly basic anion exchange resins can be defined according to the basic strength of the amino functional group.
