A squalane packed column and two open-tubular columns coated with an immobilized stationary phase film of poly(dimethylsiloxane) or poly(methyloctylsiloxane) are evaluated as surrogate chromatographic systems for the determination of the logL16 solute descriptor by gas chromatography. Retention on the squalane column is dominated by gas-liquid partitioning(More)
The solvation parameter model is used to characterize the separation properties of the polar stationary phases EC-Wax and PAG with a poly(ethylene oxide) backbone (substituted with propylene oxide in the case of PAG) and the cyanopropyl-substituted polysilphenylene-siloxane stationary phase BPX90 at five equally spaced temperatures between 60 and 140(More)
An iteration procedure is used to calculate revised solute descriptors for 103 varied compounds suitable for characterizing the retention properties of stationary phases for gas chromatography using the solvation parameter model. The iteration procedure utilizes a database of retention factors obtained on up to 39 open-tubular columns and up to five(More)
The solvation parameter model is used to characterize the separation properties of four open-tubular columns for gas chromatography at low and intermediate column temperatures covering the range 60-240 degrees C. Solute descriptors for compounds suitable for characterizing columns over the intermediate temperature range are optimized using an iterative(More)
The solvation parameter model is used to study the influence of temperature and composition on the selectivity of nine poly(siloxane) and two poly(ethylene glycol) stationary phase chemistries for open-tubular column gas chromatography. A database of system constants for the temperature range 60-140 degrees C was constructed from literature values with(More)
The solvation parameter model is used to determine the system constants for two sol-gel coated open-tubular columns at five equally spaced temperatures in the range 60-140 degrees C. Differences in the system constants as a function of temperature are used to determine the affect of sol-gel structure on the selectivity of SolGel-l and SolGel-Wax columns(More)
The solvation parameter model is used to characterize the retention properties of four application-specific open-tubular columns (Rtx-CLPesticides, Rtx-OPPesticides, Rtx-Dioxin and Rtx-Dioxin2) at five equally spaced temperatures over the range 60-140 degrees C. Cluster analysis is used to compare the system constants to a database of forty open-tubular(More)
The solvation parameter model is used to study the influence of composition and temperature on the selectivity of two poly(siloxane) stationary phases used for open-tubular capillary column gas chromatography. The poly(methyltrifluoropropyldimethylsiloxane) stationary phase, DB-200, has low cohesion, intermediate dipolarity/polarizability, low hydrogen-bond(More)
Plots of the retention factor against mobile phase composition were used to organize a varied group of solutes into three categories according to their retention mechanism on an octadecylsiloxane-bonded silica stationary phase HyPURITY C18 with methanol-water and acetonitrile-water mobile phase compositions containing 10-70% (v/v) organic solvent. The(More)
The solvation parameter model is used to characterize the retention properties of five open-tubular column stationary phases (ZB-5 ms, DB-5 ms, DB-XLB, DB-17 ms, and DB-35 ms) based on silarylene-siloxane copolymer chemistries at five equally spaced temperatures over the range 60-140 degrees C. System constant differences and regression models for varied(More)
