To develop rugged and appropriate LC method for separation and quantification of the metabolite of venalafaxine HCl, different mobile phases, stationary phases (C18, C8, Cyano, and silica) were evaluated.
However, it is clear that in the P1 structure the intermolecular distance between the cyano groups in neighbouring molecules in the [011] direction is too short (2.45(4) [Angstrom]).
Compound 4 was subjected to a standard procedure of transforming the cyano group into amidine via thioimidate salt [7], that is nitrile 4 was reacted with hydrogen sulphide affording thioamide 5, which was converted to thioimidate salt 6 with methyl iodide.

The IR spectrum showed a strong absorption band at 1732 [cm.sup.-1] corresponding to lactonic carbonyl group and the disappearance of the cyano group.
Polymerization occurs through the cyano groups on phthalonitrile units by an addition mechanism to afford the heterocyclic cross-linked products such as polytriazine, polyimine, and polyphthalocyanine, which ensures that these materials possess excellent thermal and oxidative stability [2, 11-13].

The column's ligand design incorporates an extended alkyl chain spacer between the silica surface and cyano group, which gives extra phase stability and increased column lifetime.
This is particularly the case for the polar cyano mesogen in Figure 1 where liquid crystal phases appear in the elastomer that did not exist before cross-linking [10].
