The Application Notebook

Abuse of synthetic opioid prescription painkillers such as fentanyl, along with a rapidly growing list of illicit analogues, is a significant public health problem. In this study, we developed a simple dilute-and-shoot method that provides a fast 3.5-min analysis of fentanyl and related compounds (norfentanyl, acetyl fentanyl, alfentanil, butyryl fentanyl, carfentanil, remifentanil, and sufentanil) in human urine by LC–MS/MS using a Raptor Biphenyl column.

Phenol formaldehyde resins (PFR) are used in various industrial products because of their versatile properties. Thermoplastic and thermo-reactive resin types differ in the degree of remaining reactive groups and their molar mass distribution (MMD). We compared the MMDs of two phenolic resins by gel permeation chromatography (GPC).

This application note describes the determination of pharmaceuticals from serum using solid-phase extraction (SPE) with the hydrophilic-lipophilic balanced SPE phase CHROMABOND® HLB for analyte enrichment and for sample cleanup. The eluates from SPE are finally analyzed by HPLC–MS/MS on a NUCLEOSHELL® PFP core–shell phase.
