Primesep C demonstrates the control of ion-exchange properties of Primesep columns. The peak order of caffeine and benzylamine in a mixture of caffeine, benzylamine, and phenol reverses when the mobile phase modifier is changed from ammonium acetate to trifluoroacetic acid. Control of the separation is possible even with mass spec (LC/MS) compatible mobile phases of water, acetonitrile (MeCN, ACN) and ammonium acetate or trifluoroacetic acid (TFA).
Primesep 100 and Primesep 200 columns can be used as a universal column for analysis of wide range of compounds. These mixed-mode reversed-phase ion-exchange HPLC columns can provide a valuable alternative to traditional reversed-phase column. Amines, amino acids, quaternary amines, and various zwitter-ions can be analyzed along with hydrophobic compounds and organic and inorganic counter-ions. In this application, 8 compounds with different hydrophobic, hydrophilic, basic and acidic properties are separated based on their properties. Primesep 100 column is a mixed-mode HPLC column with a C12 carbon chain and carboxylic acid on the surface with pKa of 1. Primesep 200 column is a mixed-mode HPLC column with a C12 carbon chain and carboxylic acid on the surface with pKa of 2. These columns can be used with 100% organic (ACN) and 100% aqueous mobile phases. This HPLC method can be adopted as a generic and robust approach for analysis of acidic, basic and neutral compounds within the same run.
