A generic multi-component approach was designed to perform simultaneous in situ polymerization and ligand immobilization to develop affinity porous polymer based chromatography resin in a facile mode. This strategy exploits the regioselective ring opening reaction between epoxy group of monomer and native functional group of ligand (i.e. amine) under aqueous condition (pH 9.7). As a proof-of-concept, reaction of iminodiacetic acid (IDA) with allyl glycidyl ether (AGE) in presence of other monomer (HEMA) and crosslinkers (DATD, PDA) for 4 h via thermal initiation process (temperature of 65 °C) was shown. Successful polymerization (both ex situ & in situ) was confirmed by visual observation, surface morphology of the polymer by scanning electron microscope and ligand immobilization by FT-IR analysis. Chelation of the metal-ion i.e. copper (Cu (II)) with IDA in the monolith showed IgG adsorption capacity (27.8 mg/g monolith) over IDA-monolith without metal-ion. The affinity column has shown efficient capture of high abundant proteins such as IgG, transferrin and albumin from human plasma. © 2020 Elsevier B.V.
