Resolution and sensitivity
The work presented in this poster demonstrates how 1.9 µm particles facilitate higher resolution, A separation on a 200 x 2.1mm, 5 µm column was transferred to shorter columns packed with Figure 1 demonstrates the effect of particle size on the resolution of a mixture of 7 phenones, the higher sensitivity and faster analyses.

The aim of a chromatographic separation is to obtain good resolution in a short analysis time, i.e., FIGURE 2.

resolution needs to be maximized while minimizing analysis time. Sub 2 µm particles have been developed as a chromatographic media to achieve high resolution of the sample components, fast Resolution (R ) is proportional to the square root of separation efficiency (N), as described by equation 1 which expresses resolution as a function of capacity factor (k), selectivity (α), and efficiency (N). Efficiency is, in turn, inversely proportional to the diameter of particle size (d ). Gradient: 65 to 95 %B in 1.5 min, hold for 1.5 min Unlike 5 and 3 µm particles, sub 2 µm particle packed columns can be operated over a wide flow rate range without loss of efficiency. The trade-off of using columns packed with such small particles and of operating at high flow rates is that the pressure drop (P) across the column increases. Equation 2 shows the dependency of P on particle size and flow rate. To operate under these conditions specialized equipment is required. FIGURE 1.

For the aromatic amines, the elution order of the o-toluidine and 4,4-oxydianiline on the solute) and column-to-column reproducibility determined using the column efficiency (of 200 columns) and pressure drop across the column (8 columns).

A very effective way to increase the resolution of two chromatographic bands is to increase the selectivity factor (α) by manipulating column chemistry or mobile phase composition. 1.9 µm Injection 100
Hypersil GOLD™ columns are available in three chemistries, a C18 selectivity, a polar endcapped C18 and a perfluorinated phenyl that allow more flexibility when developing high resolution, fast methods. 1.9µm particle size Hypersil GOLD phases are based on very high purity silica using a new technique for processing particles with a very narrow size dispersion. This technology, FIGURE 6. Batch-to-batch and column-to-column reproducibility for Hypersil GOLD

La soledad de America latina Antonio Pigafetta, un navegante florentino que acompañó a Magallanes en el primer viaje alrededor del mundo, escribió a su paso por nuestra América meridional una crónica rigurosa que sin embargo parece una aventura de la imaginación.
