Superficially Porous and Monolithic Columns for Ultrafast Separations in HPLC
Due to economic crisis all over the world it is a time of cost-friendly analyses. Superficially porous and monolithic columns are the tools to serve this purpose. These columns are new generation and can be used for ultrafast separations. This article describes the state-of-the-art for these stationary phases for high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The emphasis has been placed on their preparation, properties, applications, comparison, and future perspectives. It has been observed that superficially porous columns may be the choice of future for ultrafast separations.
