Comparison of silica-based cyanopropyl and octyl reversed-phase packings for the separation of peptides and proteins.

The performance of a silica-based C8 packing was compared with that of a less hydrophobic, silica-based cyanopropyl (CN) packing during their application to reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (linear trifluoroacetic acid-water to trifluoroacetic acid-acetonitrile gradients) of peptides and proteins. It was found that: (1) the CN column… CONTINUE READING
