The handling of a particulate sorbent for solid-phase extraction is often troublesome because it causes static clinging and scattering. To overcome this problem, a production method for a simple molding-type solid-phase extraction medium (M-SPEM) was developed in this study by using commercially available adhesives. The content of a particulate sorbent can increase to as much as 85 wt% in the M-SPEM. Because of the high content, the proposed M-SPEMs have a higher specific surface area than previous monolithic media.
