Porogens are key components required for the preparation of porous polymer monoliths for application in separation science. Porogens determine the stability, selectivity,and permeability of polymer monoliths. This review summarizes the role of porogensin the preparation of porous polymer monoliths with a focus on clear understandingof effect of porogens on morphological properties, porosity, surface area, mechanicalstability, and permeability of monoliths, particularly targeting the field of separationscience. This review also includes the use of different types of porogens with the focuson various approaches used to set criteria for their systematic selection, includingporogen-free techniques recently used for synthesis of porous monoliths. It discussesthe current state-of-the-art applications of porogens in column preparation as well aswhere the future developments in this field may be directed.
