Polar neurotransmitters are difficult to retain using ODS columns. In this work we show two different methods to retain these polar analytes on the multi-mode Scherzo SS-C18 column. The versatility in retention characteristics with simple changes in mobile phase is highlighted.
Compounds such as ibuprofen, chlorpheniramine, and allantoin are important in the field of pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. The analysis of acidic and basic compounds is particularly important but it is sometimes difficult to analyze both acidic and basic compounds on a single standard C18 column. Imtakt's Scherzo SM-C18 and Scherzo SW-C18 HPLC columns can separate acidic ibuprofen and basic chlorpheniramine simultaneously.
