HPLC Analysis of Illicit Drug Cocaine and Related Impurities on Coresep 100 Mixed-Mode Column

Application description

Cocaine is a powerful and highly addictive stimulant. Cocaine is a Schedule II controlled substance. Cocaine is the second most frequently used drug. It is hydrophobic and basic in nature. We have analyzed cocaine and related impurity on core-shell Coresep 100 mixed-mode column in reversed-phase cation-exchange modes. Core-shell mixed-mode chromatography offers a synergy of unique selectivity of mixed-mode stationary phases and high efficiency of core-shell particles. The method can be used for analysis of cocaine and other illegal drugs in various sample matrices. This method is compatible with major detection techniques including mass spectrometry.
