Divinylbenzene (DVB)

A polymerization monomer used as a cross-linking agent by polymerization with styrene in the manufacture of many synthetic ion exchange resin products. The degree of DVB cross-linkage is a factor in exchanger resistance to chemical oxidation. Standard cation resin usually contains about 8% DVB. Macroporous resins contain over 12% DVB cross-linking.
