The in situ preparation of monolithic capillary columns comprising copolymers of butyl methacrylate with ethylene dimethacrylate, diethylene glycol dimethacrylate, triethylene glycol dimethacrylate, and pentaerythritol tetraacrylate using thermal polymerization within 250 mu m ID capillaries and their application for mu-HPLC separations of proteins has been studied. For all crosslinkers, optimization of the porogenic mixture consisting of 1-propanol and 1,4-butanediol yielded monoliths with pore sizes above 1 mu m suitable for rapid separations at low back pressure. Very good separations were achieved for a protein mixture consisting of ribonuclease A, cytochrome c, myoglobin, and ovalbumin with all tested columns.
