Cryostructuration platform renders it possible to form macroporous materials (known as cryogels) with a broad range of porosity, from structures with combination of meso- and macropores to structures with 100-Î¼m sized macropores. When these materials are formed in the shape of monoliths (monolithic cryogels), they present a unique monolithic stationary medium for specific applications. This review summarizes the recent research on the preparation and characterization of cryostructurated monolithic cryogels for (bio)separation and points to some future perspectives.
