Mixed-Mode Separation of Dihydroxybenzoic Acids

Primesep B offers better selectivity over traditional, reversed-phase C18 columns for separating regioisomers of aromatic dihydroxybenzoic acids (2,3-dihydroxybenzoic, 2,4-dihydroxybenzoic, 2,5-dihydroxybenzoic 3,4-dihydroxybenzoic, 3,5-dihydroxybenzoic acids) Primesep B combines reversed-phase and anion-exchange mechanism with a mass spec compatible mobile phase of water, acetonitrile (MeCN, ACN) and trifluoracetic acid (TFA).
