Hydrophilic interaction chromatography (HILIC) has attractive attention for the separation of water-soluble compounds via HPLC. There are, however, few studies on the pretreatment of the HILIC-type solid-phase extraction (SPE) due to the difficulty of obtaining the HILIC-type sorbent. Therefore, the development of HILIC-type sorbents for SPE is essential. In this study, four different hydrophilic copolymers, namely diallylamine–maleic acid copolymer (DAM), diallylamine–acrylamide copolymer (DAA), allylamine–maleic acid copolymer (MAM), and partly methylcarbonylated allylamine acetate copolymer (MAC), were immobilized on glycidyl methacrylate (GMA)-base resin, and their adsorptive properties were evaluated. The results of the physical and adsorptive properties indicated that a balance between the water content of the water-enriched layer on sorbent and the amount of hydrophilic copolymer immobilized on the GMA-base resin was vital for the adsorption in HILIC-type sorbent for SPE.
