S-(Carboxymethyl)-L-cysteine can be analyzed by this reverse phase (RP) HPLC method with simple conditions. The mobile phase contains an acetonitrile (MeCN), water, and phosphoric acid. For Mass-Spec (MS) compatible applications the phosphoric acid needs to be replaced with formic acid. Smaller 3 µm particles columns available for fast UPLC applications. This liquid chromatography method is scalable and can be used for isolation impurities in preparative separation. It also suitable for pharmacokinetics.
Carbocisteine, or carbocysteine, is a drug designed to clear the mucus from the upper and lower airways. It’s primarily available in tablet form. It can be retained on a Primesep 100 Column in about 5 minutes. Primesep 100 is a reverse-phase (RP) mixed-mode column with embedded acidic ion-pairing groups.
