A review of temperature-responsive polymers as novel reagents for solid liquid separation and froth flotation of minerals

Sung Ng, Wei; Connal, Luke; Forbes, Elizaveta; Franks, G.V.


Over the past few decades, the study of temperature-responsive polymers has unlocked a vast array of potential applications in various research areas, including biological systems, wastewater treatment, and gel actuation. These dynamic materials are able to exhibit reversible hydrophilic-hydrophobic transitions in a sharp and rapid manner, under a change in temperature in aqueous solutions. This property can be used to reversibly change particle-particle interactions between attractive and...[Show more]
