N-methylimidazolium-functionalized monolithic silica column for mixed-mode chromatography.


PMID 21497821

Abstract

The development of mixed-mode stationary phase to achieve multiple separation capabilities in one column is very important for high performance liquid chromatography. In this paper, a new specific stationary phase based on grafting N-methylimidazolium to a monolithic silica column was successfully prepared for performing capillary liquid chromatography. The characteristics of the column were evaluated by the separation of different types of compounds including inorganic anions, aromatic acids, nucleotides, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, alkylbenzenes, and phenols. The mechanisms for the separation of these compounds were investigated and appeared to involve the mixed interactions including anion-exchange, hydrophilic, π-π, dipole-dipole, and hydrophobic interactions.
