Abstract: Low loading capacity is the main problem of molecularly imprinted stationary phase, which is attributed to the high level of crosslinking restricting distortion phenomena of polymer backbone in molecular imprinting. A new approach based on liquid crystal with recognition ability is demonstrated for synthesis of molecularly imprinted polymer coatings in a low level of crosslinking. The resulting low crosslinking (20%) open-tubular imprinted capillary was able to separate enantiomers by means of capillary electr…
