Abstract: Recently,a significant amount of work has focused
on metal binding by natural systems for various applications. This review
will focus on the utility of amino acids, short peptides, and proteins
that have been immobilized onto solid supports for use in metal binding.
These systems include single amino acids, poly-amino acids, and peptides
immobilized onto supports such as silica, polymer resins, and membranes.
Also included are the studies involving the use of immobilized amino
acids in ion-exchange chromatography.
