Separation of Acetaminophen and 4-Aminophenol on Primesep C


Acetaminophen and 4-Aminophenol ar both aminophenols. Acetominophen or paracetamol is a widely used analgesic and antipyretic. 4-Aminophenol is an intermediate in the synthesis of paracetamol and used in photography as a developer. Both compounds were retained and resolved on Primesep C. Primesep C is a mixed-mode HPLC column which uses reversed-phase and unique complex-forming groups to resolve compounds that might otherwise coelute.
