Other solvents can be used such as ethanol or 2-propanol isopropyl alcohol. Elution can be performed isocratically the water-solvent composition does not change during the separation process or by using a solution gradient the water-solvent composition changes during the separation process, usually by decreasing the polarity.
Charged analytes can be separated on a reversed-phase column by the use of ion-pairing also called ion-interaction. PFP is pentafluorphenyl. Namespaces Book Discussion. For this reason, normal phase chromatography is more commonly used for separation of proteins. This creates a hydrophobic stationary phase. In this chapter, the theoretical background and technical traits of RPLC are outlined.
The pH of the mobile phase can have an important role on the retention of an analyte and can change the selectivity of certain analytes. Charged analytes can be separated on a reversed-phase column by the use of ion-pairing also called ion-interaction. This technique is known as reversed-phase ion-pairing chromatography.

To summarize, the chromatographer will choose the best combination of a mobile phase and particle stationary phase with appropriately opposite polarities. Then, as the sample analytes move through the column, the rule like attracts like will determine which analytes slow down and which proceed at a faster speed. Normal-Phase HPLC In his separations of plant extracts, Tswett was successful using a polar stationary phase [chalk in a glass column; see Figure A] with a much less polar [non-polar] mobile phase.
This classical mode of chromatography became known as normal phase. Figure S Normal-Phase Chromatography.
Figure S-1 represents a normal-phase chromatographic separation of our three-dye test mixture. The stationary phase is polar and retains the polar yellow dye most strongly.
The relatively non-polar blue dye is won in the retention competition by the mobile phase, a non-polar solvent, and elutes quickly. Since the blue dye is most like the mobile phase [both are non-polar], it moves faster.
Reversed-Phase HPLC The term reversed-phase describes the chromatography mode that is just the opposite of normal phase, namely the use of a polar mobile phase and a non-polar [hydrophobic] stationary phase. Figure S-2 illustrates the black three-dye mixture being separated using such a protocol. Figure S Reversed-Phase Chromatography. Now the most strongly retained compound is the more non-polar blue dye, as its attraction to the non-polar stationary phase is greatest.
The polar yellow dye, being weakly retained, is won in competition by the polar, aqueous mobile phase, moves the fastest through the bed, and elutes earliest like attracts like.
Most of these protocols use as the mobile phase an aqueous blend of water with a miscible, polar organic solvent, such as acetonitrile or methanol. This typically ensures the proper interaction of analytes with the non-polar, hydrophobic particle surface. Table C presents a summary of the phase characteristics for the two principal HPLC separation modes based upon polarity. Remember, for these polarity-based modes, like attracts like.
Only traces of water are present in the mobile phase and in the pores of the polar packing particles. Polar analytes bind strongly to the polar stationary phase and may not elute. Water, a very polar solvent, competes effectively with polar analytes for the stationary phase. HILIC may be run in either isocratic or gradient elution modes.
Reversed-phase chromatography includes any chromatographic method that uses a hydrophobic stationary phase. RPC refers to liquid (rather than gas). Reversed phase chromatography (RP-HPLC) uses resins with small hydrophobic groups attached. Instead of using salt gradients to elute hydrophobic species.
Polar compounds that are initially attracted to the polar packing material particles can be eluted as the polarity [strength] of the mobile phase is increased [by adding more water]. Analytes are eluted in order of increasing hydrophilicity [chromatographic polarity relative to water].
Buffers or salts may be added to the mobile phase to keep ionizable analytes in a single form. Hydrophobic-Interaction Chromatography [HIC] HIC is a type of reversed-phase chromatography that is used to separate large biomolecules, such as proteins. It is usually desirable to maintain these molecules intact in an aqueous solution, avoiding contact with organic solvents or surfaces that might denature them. HIC takes advantage of the hydrophobic interaction of large molecules with a moderately hydrophobic stationary phase, e.
Initially, higher salt concentrations in water will encourage the proteins to be retained [ salted out ] on the packing. Gradient separations are typically run by decreasing salt concentration.
In this way, biomolecules are eluted in order of increasing hydrophobicity. In ion-exchange chromatography and other separations based upon electrical charge, the rule is reversed.
Likes may repel, while opposites are attracted to each other. Stationary phases for ion-exchange separations are characterized by the nature and strength of the acidic or basic functions on their surfaces and the types of ions that they attract and retain. Cation exchange is used to retain and separate positively charged ions on a negative surface.
