General description

Sodium 1-nonanesulfonate is an ion pair reagent, suitable for cation separation sorted by carbon chain length.


Sodium 1-nonanesulfonate may be used as a mobile phase additive for the determination of cefmatilen and its metabolites in biological samples by coupled systems of ion-exchange and reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography.
Sodium 1-nonanesulfonate may also be used as an ion-pair reagent in liquid chromatography analysis of guanidino compounds in serum using a porous graphite carbon column.
