HPLC Method for Analysis of Phthalic Acids on Coresep SB Column in Reversed-Phase and Anion-Exchange Modes

Application description

Phthalic acids are aromatic dicarboxylic acids with various positions of carboxylic groups. Isomers of phthalic acid were analyzed in reversed-phase anion-exchange on Coresep SB HPLC mixed-mode column. The small difference in hydrophobicity/polarity and acidic properties of molecules contributes to great resolution between these acids. Method and HPLC column can be used for analysis of phthalic and other acids in various matrices with various detection techniques (UV, ELSD, RI, MS, etc.). Coresep SB column combines unique selectivity of mixed-mode with ultra-high efficiency of core-shell particles technology. HPLC method is reproducible and robust.
