Due to the highly polar nature of saccharides, the analysis of sugars is typically achieved using Hydrophilic Interaction Chromatography (HILIC). Using a high polarity packing material, separation is based on the hydrophilic interactions of the sugars on the stationary phase surface typically using an eluent with a majority of polar organic solvent.
