Biodegradable adsorbents were synthesized via interaction of biopolysaccharide with blocked isocyanate. Glycopolymers based on cross-linked konjac glucomannan demonstrate good adsorption ability for phenol whereas xanthan based glycopolymers are promising for metal ion sorption from water solutions. The system adsorption capacity can be regulated by changing polysaccharide OH-group substitution degree, isocyanate or blocking agent.
