Fast Separation of Eleven Nitroaromatic Compounds on ZirChrom-CARB
September 01, 2012
This technical bulletin details the separation of 11 closely related nitroaromatic compounds, namely RDX, HMX, Nitrobenzene, 2-Nitrotoluene, Tetryl, 2,6-Dinitrotoluene, 4-Nitrotoluene, 1,3-Dinitrobenzene, 2,4-Dinitrotoluene, 2-amino 4,6-dinitrotoluene, 1,3,5-Trinitrobenzene. Our customers have reported that similar separations on silica-based phases produce run times as long as 30 min. Here we report a method on ZirChrom?-CARB at a column temperature of 125 ?C in under 4 min.
