In recent years, many exciting discoveries have taken place in the area of separation science. At the forefront is the development and improvement of monolithic column technology, mainly for applications in liquid chromatography, capillary electrochromatography, and occasionally, gas chromatography. Interest in monoliths as stationary phases has been stimulated by the promise of achieving fast and efficient separations, so as to permit rapid high-throughput analysis. Enthusiasm for making monoliths in one's own laboratory has also contributed to interest. Consequently, this Special Issue is dedicated to showcasing the latest research findings related to the role of monolithic columns in separation science, starting from column design and preparation, to the characterization of column properties and performance, to the wide range of applications for commercial as well as custom-made columns.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Separations is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
