Analyzing Compounds Taurolidine
            Taurolidine is important medication used primarily as an antimicrobial agent in the prevention of bacterial infections in catheters. It has also been shown to have some anti-tumor properties. Taurolidine is not approved for use in the United States, but widely used in the rest of the world. HPLC analysis of taurolidine in reverse-phased mode poses a challenge with mobile phases that contain water. It undergoes hydrolysis when exposed to water and therefore requires pure organic mobile phase. We developed a simple method based on our mixed-mode column technology. Interesting that varying retention times, based on the molecular structure of ligand, can be achieved in pure bufferless acetonitrile (ACN) mobile phase using Sielc’s mixed-mode Primesep columns.
