Separation media based on hierarchically porous titania (TiO2) monoliths for highperformance liquid chromatography (HPLC) have been successfully fabricated by the sol-gel process of titanium alkoxide in a mild condition utilizing a chelating agent and mineral salt. The as-gelled TiO 2 monoliths were subjected to a simple solvent exchange process from ethanol (EtOH) to H2O followed by drying and calcination. The resultant monolithic TiO2 columns consist of anatase crystallites with the typical specific surface area of more than 200m2/g. The resultant monolithic TiO2 column calcined at 200 and 400°C exhibited a good separation performance for organophosphates as well as for polar benzene derivatives in the normal-phase mode.
