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.

What the HILIC is HILIC?

Hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) is a chromatographic mode used mainly for the separation of polar compounds that are too hydrophilic to be retained in a reversed phase column.
