Endcapped stationary phases were prepared after thermal immobilization of poly(methyloctadecylsiloxane) (PMODS) onto zirconized and titanized silica supports. These new stationary phases have lower densities of residual hydroxyl groups, according to infrared spectroscopy and 29Si CP-MAS NMR and as shown by the symmetrical peaks of basic compounds from the Tanaka, Engelhardt and SRM 870 test mixtures. Stability tests for the endcapped stationary phases, measured using severe alkaline conditions (70:30 (v/v) methanol:0.05 mol/L K2CO3/KHCO3, pH 10, 50 °C), revealed that the stabilities of these phases are greater than the stabilities of similar nonendcapped phases. The stationary phases showed good performance for the separation of basic pharmaceuticals.
