HPLC Separation of Carbofuran on Obelisc R and Primesep 100 Columns

 

Carbofuran is an insecticide notable for its high toxicity to vertebrates, especially birds; it is one of the most toxic to humans as well. While band in many countries such as the U.S. and Canada, it can be purchased over-the-counter in some countries such as Kenya. Carbofuran was considered a target pesticide by the EURL (European Union Reference Laboratory) for the EUPT-FF9 2015 a proficiency test for the analysis of a over a hundred pesticides. Obelisc R and Primesep 100 were used to analyze carbofuran. Primesep 100 separates by reverse-phase and utilizing embedded acidic ion-pairing groups. Obelisc R uses long hydrophobic chains and multiple ion-pairing groups.

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.
