Preparative SFC: Mixed vs. Modifier-Stream Injections
April 30, 2013
This presentation, from the Thar (Waters) SFC Users Group meeting in Zurich in 2008, was uploaded in response to questions about the effect of injecting samples on columns in liquid solvents. In SFC (unlike HPLC), the mobile phase is primarily liquid CO2, and injecting samples dissolved in mobile phase is impossible. The effect of increasing injection volume in particular is dramatic.
Miller & Sebastian, at Amgen, later published aspects of our work in a 2012 paper in J. Chromatogr. A. More recently, scientists at Waters Corporation have extended the study of diluent effects to varying the solvent chemically.
