Applications:


HPLC Method for Analysis of Allantoine
HPLC Method for Analysis of Allantoine

Allantoine is found in plants such as wheat sprouts, chamomile, sugar beet, and comfrey. It is used as a moisturizer, which is, as the name suggest, used to moisturize the skin and to treat or prevent skin irritations and dry skin. Primesep 100, a reverse-phase column, contains embedded acidic ionizable groups and can retain Allantoine. The method is LC/MS and UV compatible and can be used as a general approach for analyzing similar compounds.
