Highly selective enrichment of phosphopeptides by titanium (IV) attached monodisperse-porous poly(vinylphosphonic acid-co-ethylene dimethacrylate) microspheres.

A seeded polymerization protocol was developed for the synthesis of monodisperse-porous poly(vinylphosphonic acid-co-ethylene dimethacrylate), [poly(VPA-co-EDMA)] microspheres with superior porous properties. The protocol allowed the direct synthesis of phosphonic acid functionalized porous microspheres with the mean size of ∼4μm and the specific surface… (More)
