HPLC Separation of Parabens and Benzoic Acid


Parabens possess antibacterial and antifungal properties and are therefore widely used in pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries as preservatives in products. Parabens and benzoic acid can be baseline separated in a short time frame using Primesep B2 reverse-phase HPLC column with a simple mobile phase of water, acetonitrile (ACN, MeCN) and phosphoric acid of 0.1% as buffer. UV detection at 210nm.
