Achiral SFC for the analysis of complex mixtures.
We've been busy back in the laboratory too. We've taken complex samples, waste of waste streams generated here in the lab, and analysed them across techniques and columns. We found that in most cases an equal or greater, number of impurities were resolved using at least one of the SFC columns in comparison to a standard UHPLC gradient method. This gives us even more confidence that when the prep technology catches up with analytical columns more and more compounds will be suitable for purification by SFC, which in our eyes is of huge benefit!
Prep on the Rhein
Senior Separation Scientist Alex Brien presented a rather rhetorical question at the Phenoprep symposium in Rheinfelden last month. 'Is HPLC the end of SFC?' it promoted much discussion and took a look at how the two technologies can be utilised together as well as the individual benefits of each. If you'd like a copy of the slides, please don't hesitate to get in touch. The symposium allowed for plenty of conversation and idea sharing between scientists and the whole event was hosted in a beautiful river side castle!
We'll be visiting Basel again twice in June, so if you are facing any chiral challenges please don't hesitate to get in touch
we'd be more than happy to pop in for a visit.
