Ingenious syntheses of chelating resins continue to be reported. However, large scale applications for such materials are limited, and few are likely to be produced industrially. The main markets appear to be in the production of low volume, high value elements: precious metals, rare earths with valuable optical properties and raw materials for electronic devices. Applications in lower value fields such as waste management or by-product recovery should benefit from novel resin formats designed for improved resin/liquid contacting.
