This application note demonstrates the use of the Thermo Scientific Syncronis C18 1.7 µm column for the determination of esomeprazole by UHPLC-UV.
One of the key goals for the chromatographer is to achieve a consistent, reproducible separation. The selection of a highly reproducible HPLC column is essential if this goal is to be attained. The Syncronis™ column range has been engineered to provide exceptional reproducibility due to its highly pure, high surface area silica, dense bonding and double endcapping, all controlled and characterized through the use of rigorous testing.
Esomeprazole is a protein pump inhibitor and works by decreasing the amount of acid produced in the stomach. It is prescribed for treatment of gastroesophageal reflux diseases such as heartburn. It is also used for the treatment of stomach ulcers caused by taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
This application note demonstrates the successful analysis of esomeprazole using a Syncronis C18 1.7 µm column.
Working standard contained 50 µg/mL of esomeprazole in water.
