Full Title: Validation of the extended Tanaka column characterization protocol by multivariate analysis of chromatographic retention of low-molecular-weight analytes on reversed phase columns using methanol and acetonitrile as organic modifiers The validity of the extended Tanaka column characterization procedure against the retention behavior of 101 analytes of widely differing properties chromatographed on five differing stationary...

The practical implications of performing column characterization protocols (i.e. Tanaka) and their resultant chromatographic selectivity parameters using small dimension columns (i.e. 50 x 2.1 mm I.D.) at high pressures have been critically compared to those obtained using conventional LC methodology. Retention factors should be corrected for the system extra column volume even when determined on...
