Monolithic Chromatography and Its Modern Applications

Hurry - Only 2 left in stock!
High-performance liquid chromatography has become the predominant global separation technique over the past four decades. However, the recent development of an alternative column packing material - a one-piece porous solid known as a 'monolith' - has transformed the field. Monoliths have attracted a large amount of interest due to the enhanced speed and thoroughness with which they can separate complex mixtures of biological molecules. Monoliths are porous rod structures characterised by mesopores and macropores. These pores provide monoliths with high permeability, a large number of channels and a high surface area available for reactivity. The backbone of a monolithic column is composed of either an organic or inorganic substrate and can easily be chemically altered for specific applications. Their unique structure gives them several physico-mechanical properties that enable them to perform competitively against traditionally packed columns. In this book, which is endorsed by ChromSoc and EuSSS, global experts comprehensively describe this developing field. Part I covers the synthesis and characterisation of the columns and Part II dicusses their numerous applications. This volume will be of interest to those already using monolithic columns, as well as those who are new to the area and would like to know more about this technique.

I found this book to be an excellent reference for monolithic chromatography, well organized and presented in an easy to understand style. I would strongly recommend the book to all analytical laboratories thinking of improving their separation protocols. Review by Sanjay Garg, University of Auckland, New Zealand, in Bioanalysis, 2011, 3: 5 [This book] serves as an introductory reader that is likely to inspire both seasoned scientists already working with monoliths and novices who want to encounter them for the first time and see how they can be applied in their work. Thus, this book could be a helpful resource for scientists and practitioners engaged in analytical chemistry and related fields. Review by F. Svec, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA, in Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, 2011, 401: 5
