HPLC Determination of Lactic Acid on Newcrom BH Column

HPLC.cloud View on hplc.cloud Lactic acid (milk acid) is a natural organic acid that plays an important role in biochemical processes.  It has a carboxylic and hydroxy- groups which, upon standing, can react with each other and form dimers, trimers and higher oligomers.  Lactic acid is a polar molecule that does not retain on reversed-phase columns. Newcrom BH mixed-mode anion-exchange column is used for the separation of lactic acid and its oligomers by a combination of weak reversed-phase and anion-exchange mechanisms. Lactates can be monitored by low UV, ELSD, CAD  or LC/MS.
