HPLC Separation of Dihydroxybenzoic Acid


Separation of hydrophilic isomers is very difficult when only one mechanism of retention, like reversed-phase, is available. Isomers have very similar hydrophobic properties. In case of mixed-mode chromatography, small difference in hydrophobic and ionic properties allows to separate isomers. Isomers of dihydroxybenzoic acids are separated on a Primesep D column with good selectivity and peak shape. This method can be used for separation of other hydrophilic acidic compounds as well as hydrophobic basic compound.
