Sorptive properties of the copolymers were investigated in accord with the following technique.

The effect of grain moisture content on the toxicity of a sorptive silica dust to four species of grain beetle.
Among their topics are the Liesegang operator, research into self-organization pulsation ion flows in oxyhydrate gels, the form and mechanism of stochastic wave clusters near graphite recording electrodes, textural morphological parameters of oxyhydrates and their sorptive parameters, and using oxyhydrate sorbents in applied radiochemistry and hydrometallurgy.
In acid treated materials, the sorptive properties are enhanced, the surface acidity, surface area, porosity and pore volume are increased (Jin and Dai, 2012).
To enable absorption or adsorption, the sorptive surface can be a molecule, polymer, organic or inorganic entity.
Thus the carbon retains its sorptive properties in the plastics.
While these nanoparticles were shown to have diminished bioavailability compared to documented values in literature on aerobic and anaerobic bacteria in the absence of soil, the presence of soil is likely to provide a variety of sorptive opportunities for nanoparticles and/or the products of nanoparticle dissolution.
Such a trend is mostly attributed to an increase in the sorptive surface area and the availability of more active adsorption sites.

Sorptive abilities of food commodities vary, and commodity sorption can be a major factor in determining whether a lethal concentration of fumigant is achieved or not under sufficiently airtight conditions (Banks 1993, Sinclair and Lindgren, 1958).
The main aim of this review is to provide recent information concerning the sorptive removal of dyes.
The relatively higher percentage sorption observed at low initial concentrations of dye may be due to the high ratio of sorptive surface to the dye concentration, which implied that a fewer number of dye molecules were competing for the available binding sites on the adsorbent (Gupta and Mohapatra, 2003).
