Abstract Nowadays, functional peptides and oligosaccharides are important as foodstuff, pharmaceuticals or specialty products. In the food industry, these components are usually present in very large product and waste streams. These components can be separated with the use of chromatographic processes. At the moment, conventional packed beds are being used. However, due to elevated pressure drop, long cycle times and, as a result, large size of equipment needed, these large streams are not so suitable to be processed with an affordable process. Monoliths have been proven in other applications and might be a good alternative due to their increased convective transport and no negative trade-off between cycle time and pressure drop. The design of the more efficient structures have been calculated. At the moment, work is being done to verify these results including modelling and model validation with experiments focused on the particular case of separation of oligosaccharides.
