Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research, "The reduction in particle size achieved in this study was attributed to the altered polarity of the stabilizing nanoparticles used in the Pickering emulsion. The imprinted polymer beads could be used directly in water and showed a high binding affinity for the template molecule, 17-beta-estradiol, and its structural analogs."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "These water-compatible polymer beads could be used as affinity adsorbents for the extraction and analysis of low-abundance steroid compounds in aqueous samples."
