Fluorinated hypercrosslinked polymer bearing phenyl and fluorinated phenyl moieties has been tested as a sorbent for the solid-phase extraction (SPE) of lipophilic compounds from water samples. Three different polymeric matrices were synthesized by employing Pentafluorostyrene and Styrene as functional monomers, and the sperific surface area of the resulting materials was evaluated. Naphol, naphthene and xanthenes were chosen as model compounds simulating Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans, the most toxic classes of pollutants fromincineration of waste.
