Separation of Nucleotide Monophosphates

 

Nucleotides are the monomers of DNA and RNA, composed of a five-carbon sugar, a nitrogenous base, and at least one phosphate group. Primesep SB is a good column for separating these highly polar compounds. Primesep SB is a reverse-phase column with strong embedded basic ion-pairing groups. Retention can me manipulated by adjusting acetonitrile, and the baseline separation can be achieved in under 6 minutes using a gradient.
