  3. 3. What is HPLC ? <ul><li>Originally referred to as </li></ul><ul><li>H igh P ressure L iquid C hromatography </li></ul><ul><li>Now more commonly called </li></ul><ul><li>H igh P erformance L iquid C hromatography </li></ul><ul><li>HPLC is an analytical technique used to separate component of mixture by using variety of chemical interaction between the analyte and the chromatography column. </li></ul><ul><li>Why HPLC ? </li></ul><ul><li>Automated version of LC </li></ul><ul><li>Provides enhanced separations in short time duration. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s a most practiced quantitative, chromatographic technique which can separates wide range of molecule types and sizes. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Applications of HPLC <ul><li>Pharmaceutical / Biopharmaceutical </li></ul><ul><li>Pharmaceutical quality control. </li></ul><ul><li>Shelf-life determinations of pharmaceutical products. </li></ul><ul><li>Identification of counterfeit drug products. </li></ul><ul><li>Complex molecules separation. </li></ul><ul><li>Environmental </li></ul><ul><li>Biomonitoring of pollutents. </li></ul><ul><li>Water monitoring - Phenol content and toxic componants checking. </li></ul><ul><li>Clinical </li></ul><ul><li>Analysis of antibiotics and blood substances. </li></ul><ul><li>Detection of endogenous neuropeptides in brain extracellular fluids. </li></ul><ul><li>Food and Flavor </li></ul><ul><li>Sugar analysis in fruit juices. </li></ul><ul><li>Ensuring soft drink consistency and quality. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Types of HPLC <ul><li>Normal Phase : Separation of polar analytes by partitioning onto a polar, bonded stationary phase using non polar mobile phase. </li></ul><ul><li>Reversed Phase : Separation of non-polar analytes by partitioning onto a non-polar, bonded stationary phase using polar mobile phase. </li></ul><ul><li>Adsorption : In Between Normal and Reversed. Separation of moderately polar analytes using adsorption onto a pure stationary phase (e.g. alumina or silica) </li></ul><ul><li>Ion Exchange Chromatography : Separation of organic and inorganic ions by their partitioning onto ionic stationary phases bonded to a solid support. </li></ul><ul><li>Size Exclusion Chromatography : Also called as Gel filtration chromatography. Separation of molecules based on their size. </li></ul>
