Aim of the project is to develop new porous monolithic polymer supports by the use of water in oil emulsions. Novel monoliths will be characterised (scanning electron microscopy, N2 adsorption/desorption analysis, mercury porosimetry, pulse disturbance) to provide data on influences on characteristics and morphology. Volume ratio of water/organic phase will be varied and influence on morphology studied. Influence of polymerisation conditions and total pore volume on pore size distribution and influence of the structure of support on pressure drop will also be studied. New supports will be used in flow-through methods and compared to commercially available CIM monoliths with regards to performance at separation and binding of macromolecules. PolyHIPE supports will be functionalised through the reactive groups in the polymer matrix.
