Abstract Sorption of aliphatic amines and alkanes on the smectic and isotropic phases of a Cu complex was investigated. It was found that this sorbent could be used to extract and concentrate amine traces from air samples. The mesomorphous structure of Cu complex is highly selective to geometric isomers and hardly separated aromatic mixtures.
