HPLC Analysis of Herbicide 2,4-D on Coresep 100 Mixed-Mode Column

Application description

2,4-D or 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid is phenoxyacetic herbicide used in the treatment of broadleaf weeds. 2,4-D is one of the most widely used herbicides and defoliant. 2,4-D is manufactured from chloroacetic acid and 2,4-dichlorophenol. 2,4-D is often used in combination with dicamba, mecoprop, and MCPA. 2,4-D was analyzed on core-shell mixed-mode column in reversed-phase anion-exclusion modes. Retention time is controlled by the amount of ACN, buffer concentration and buffer pH. The method is suitable for analysis of various herbicides with LC/MS compatible conditions. Core-shell mixed-mode chromatography offers a synergy of unique selectivity of mixed-mode stationary phases and high efficiency of core-shell particles.
