CONT

Des polymères minéraux (silice activée) et des polymères naturels (amidon, alginate) ont d'abord été utilisés. Mais l'apparition de polymères de synthèse très diversifiés a fait évoluer considérablement les performances de la floculation.

Polímero sin átomos de carbono en la cadena principal.
