 High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) Method for Analysis of 1,4-Diaminobutane (Putrescine)

Putrescine is a biogenic amine and organic compound with the chemical formula. It is a polyamine, which means it contains multiple amino groups. Putrescine is one of the naturally occurring polyamines found in living organisms and is involved in various biological processes.

Biological Roles:

  • Putrescine is involved in cell growth, proliferation, and differentiation.
  • It plays a role in the synthesis of other important molecules, including certain alkaloids and polyamine derivatives.
  • Putrescine is produced by the decarboxylation of ornithine, an amino acid.

Polyamine Family:

  • Putrescine is part of a family of polyamines, which also includes spermidine and spermine.
  • Polyamines are essential for cell growth, and their levels are tightly regulated in living cells.

Research and Applications:

  • Putrescine and other polyamines have been studied for their roles in cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and other health-related conditions.
  • In some industries, putrescine is used as a chemical intermediate for the production of certain polymers and plastics.

Putrescine can be retained and analyzed using an Obelisc R mixed-mode stationary phase column. The analysis employs an isocratic method with a simple mobile phase consisting of water, acetonitrile (MeCN), and ammonium formate as a buffer. Detection is achieved using ELSD
