Comparison of the Features Among Shodex Reverse Phase Chromatography (RPC) Columns


The interrelation between hydrophobicity and retention, and the interrelation between steric selectivity and retention were compared among Shodex columns for reversed phase chromatography. The retention factor (k’) of amylbenzene was used as the retention, the separation factor (α) between n-butylbenzene and n-amino benzene was used as the hydrophobicity. The separation factor between o-terphenil and triphenylene was used as the steric recognition. Lager separation factor means higher hydrophobicity and higher steric selectivity.
