Chemical separations based on absorption phenomena into syndiotactic polystyrene samples including a nanoporous crystalline phase are described. These separation phenomena are due to the presence into the crystalline phase of cavities whose size and shape have been studied through sorption experiments relative to linear hydrocarbons and through calculation procedures relative to the available crystalline structures of different polymorphic and clathrate forms of syndiotactic polystyrene.
