Abstract
In the present study, the peak capacity potential of ultralong porous cylindrical pillar array columns is investigated. Coupling 4 columns of 2 m long allows for working near the minimal separation impedance of small molecules under retained conditions at a maximal pressure load of 250 bar. Minimal plate heights of H = 5.0 mu m, H = 6.3 mu m, and H = 7.7 mu m were obtained for uracil (unretained), butyrophenone (k = 0.85), and valerophenone (k = 1.94), respectively, corresponding to a number of theoretical plates of N = 1.6 X 10(6), N = 1.2 x 10(6), and N = 1.0 x 10(6). The optimal linear velocities were 0.60 mm/s for a retained compound and 0.74 mm/s for an unretained compound. Based on a mixture of 9 compounds, the peak capacity tic was determined as a function of gradient time (t(G)). Peak capacities (t(G)based) of 1103 and 1815 were obtained when applying 650 min and 2050 min gradients (t(G)/t(0) = 4.5 and 14, respectively, with t(G) as the gradient time and t(0) as the void time). These values are much higher than earlier reported peak capacity values for small molecules.
