Analysis using a Simple Mobile Phase.

In this Method two important amino acids: L-(+)–alpha-phenylglycine and L-phenylalanine, were Separated.

C18 Columns used today which may be present in every Analytical Laboratory may not be able to Retain underivatized Amino Acids. They usually elute at or near the “void volume” with other polar compounds.

1. L-(+)-Alpha-Phenylglycine
2. L-Phenylalanine
