The best chromatography was attained using a mobile phase composition of 50-50 split of methanol as organic phase and 5 mM oxalic acid solution as aqueous phase flowing at 0.
In addition to the selection of an appropriate column--which can include factors such as stationary phase chemistry, particle size and column length--other important conditions, including mobile phase pH, separation temperature, solvent choice and gradient profile must also be systematically optimized.
Performing PTH-amino acid analysis in isocratic mode also enables laboratories to reduce liquid waste and running costs through mobile phase recycling.
The different types of chromatography were given by the states in which you can find the stationary phase and the mobile phase of the column.
Liquid chromatography (LC) separates molecules in a liquid mobile phase by means of a solid stationary phase.
One of the key steps in any form of chromatography is the preparation of a homogenous mobile phase, which usually includes the addition of water, methanol and/or acetonitrile.
The standard TLC analysis of curcumin using a normal TLC plate with a mobile phase of 97% dichloromethane, 3% methanol works well (12).
6 x 150 mm, 5 m) column and recommended mobile phase comprising acetonitrile - methanol - potassium dihydrogen phosphate (22+34+44 v/v), the desired results obtained were not according the chromatograms provided by European Pharmacopeia (EP), but by using another column (ACE 5 C8) (4.
The optimization of protein separations in RPLC has generally been achieved via the manipulation of the mobile phase with a given column; however, the use of different stationary phases, preferably with complementary selectivities, has also been successful [3].
Then, the plate was developed with less than 10 ml of mobile phase in a beaker at room temperature.
