Evaluation of active solvent modulation to enhance two-dimensional liquid chromatography for target analysis in polymeric matrices.

A new methodology is presented for two-dimensional liquid chromatography (2D-LC) separations of polymers. Active solvent modulation (ASM) was evaluated in its effectiveness to enhance solvent compatibility for both separation dimensions. As an example the determination of target compounds in epoxy resins was used. Ultra-high pressure size-exclusion… (More)
