Advantage of ODP2 HP (5) Alkali Durability

The alkali durability test shows that the retention times of each sample and relative theoretical plate numbers (TPN) usingODP2 HP-4D were virtually unchanged even after 500 hours. On the other hand, for ODS (A) retention times of each sample decreased rapidly, reducing TPN after 24 hours, thus showing degradation of the column.

Test condition of alkali durability: 
Eluent       : 10mM Phosphate buffer(pH12)/CH3CN=45/55
Flow rate    : 0.6mL/min

Sample : 5micro-L
1. Pyridine 200mg/L
2. Phenol 430mg/L

* TPN before flowing alkali eluent is set as 100% in this test.
