Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX 78712, USA

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.
