Best and Worst Organic Solvents to Use in LC

There are several critical characteristics to take into consideration when choosing the appropriate organic solvent to use in liquid chromatography. For example, high viscosity solvents may produce backpressures that are too high for the HPLC system used.

Humanity in Science: Combating Counterfeit with Capillary Electrophoresis

The Humanity in Science Award was created in 2015 to recognize outstanding developments in science that could change human lives for the better. There were many runners-up who did (and do!) amazing things for humanity. Recently, The Analytical Scientist sat down with each of them to catch up, and find out how their ventures have progressed in the last 12 months.

Technical Tip: Principle HPLC Conditions for LC/MS

High-performance (or pressure) liquid chromatography, more commonly known as HPLC, can be a useful tool to assist in the improvement or simplicity of mass spectral detection and analysis.
