HPLC Analysis of Diphenamid on Primesep 100 and Obelisc R

 

 

Diphenamid is an herbicide which selectively controls weedy grasses and broadleaf plants in the production of tobacco, tomatoes, peppers, cotton, and many more commercial crops. Diphenamid is a preemergence herbicide that is surface applied to soils and can be expected to control weeds for 6-8 months. Diphenamid was analyzed on two different stationary phases. Primesep 100 is a reverse phase column that contains embedded acidic ion-pairing groups, while Obelisc R retains with long hydrophobic chains and multiple ionic pairing groups on the surface. Method is LC/MS compatible and can be replicated to analyze dozens of other pesticides.

Obelisc R

SIELC has developed the mixed-mode Obelisc™ columns to be the first commercially available columns with Liquid Separation Cell technology (LiSC™). This cost effective duo can replace multiple HPLC columns such as reversed-phase (RP), AQ-type reversed-phase, polar-embedded group RP columns, normal-phase, cation-exchange, anion- exchange, ion-exclusion, and HILIC (Hydrophilic Interaction Liquid Chromatography) columns. By controlling just three orthogonal method parameters  - Buffer concentration, Buffer pH, and Organic Modifier Concentration  - users can adjust the column properties with pinpoint precision to separate complex mixtures.

Primesep 100

The Primesep family of mixed-mode columns offer a wide variety of stationary phases with an unprecedented selectivity in the separation of a broad array of chemical compounds and in multiple applications. Corresponding Primesep guard columns are available with all stationary phases and do not require holders. SIELC offers a method development service which is available for all customers. Ask about our special custom LC-phases tailored for specific separations.
