Repeatability in column preparation of a reversed-phase C18 monolith and its application to separation of tocopherol homologues.

Summary of "Repeatability in column preparation of a reversed-phase C18 monolith and its application to separation of tocopherol homologues."

This work investigated the repeatability of column preparation for a reversed-phase C18 monolith, namely stearyl methacrylate-co-ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (SMA-EDMA). The columns were thermally polymerised using three commonly available heating devices (GC oven, hot air oven and water bath) and their chromatographic performance evaluated using micro-liquid chromatography for separation of five test compounds. Precision in terms of %RSD of retention times were 9.0, 6.5, and 12.5 using GC oven, hot air oven and water bath, respectively. Between-batch precision for the hot air oven (n=3 days) was less than 10.4% for retention time. The SMA-EDMA monolith was applied to the separation of tocopherol homologues by capillary electrochromatography. Usually tocopherol homologues cannot be completely separated by conventional reversed-phase C8- or C18-packed bed or C18-silica based monolithic columns. Polymer monolith has been shown to give remarkable selectivity towards the tocopherols compared to the conventional microparticulate phase and silica based monolith. Successful separation of the tocopherol isomers was achieved on the SMA-EDMA monolith without any column modification.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Use of various chemical separation and extraction methods, such as SOLID PHASE EXTRACTION; CHROMATOGRAPHY; and SUPERCRITICAL FLUID EXTRACTION; to prepare samples for analytical measurement of components.

Fractionation of a vaporized sample as a consequence of partition between a mobile gaseous phase and a stationary phase held in a column. Two types are gas-solid chromatography, where the fixed phase is a solid, and gas-liquid, in which the stationary phase is a nonvolatile liquid supported on an inert solid matrix.

A solventless sample preparation method, invented in 1989, that uses a fused silica fiber which is coated with a stationary phase. It is used for sample cleanup before using other analytical methods.

Techniques used to separate mixtures of substances based on differences in the relative affinities of the substances for mobile and stationary phases. A mobile phase (fluid or gas) passes through a column containing a stationary phase of porous solid or liquid coated on a solid support. Usage is both analytical for small amounts and preparative for bulk amounts.

The interval between two successive CELL DIVISIONS during which the CHROMOSOMES are not individually distinguishable. It is composed of the G phases (G1 PHASE; G0 PHASE; G2 PHASE) and S PHASE (when DNA replication occurs).
