Capillary electrochromatography column behavior of butyl and lauryl acrylate porous polymer monoliths.


PMID 16007995

Abstract

A variety of porous polymer monoliths (PPMs) have been synthesized using the 'conduct-as-cast' format. The resulting polymers have been evaluated for use as separation media in capillary electrochromatography (CEC). The results have shown that substituting a small percentage of the standard polymer formulation with a more hydrophobic monomer produced columns with expected increases in retention for a neutral analyte series. However, substituting larger percentages of a more hydrophobic monomer resulted in columns that exhibited less retention. The unexpected behavior of these hydrophobic columns has been attributed to the non-uniform polymeization of the moree hydrophobic monoliths. Van Deemter plots of polyaromatic hydrocarbons have been examined to further analyze the unexpected behavior of these columns. Hmin values ranged from 8.7 to 9.1 microm for the columns evaluated. The effect of the percentage of organic modfier in the phase on the separation has also been studied. The retention window decreases when altering the ACN concentration in the mobile phase from 50% to 80% (v/v).
