Excellent Peak Shape for a Cationic Compound Commonly found in Household Products

This Method demonstrates the potential to avoid Peak Tailing or Band Broadening with cationic compounds due to interaction with Silanols on the surface of Reversed Phase Column. Tailing can cause interference with Quantitation of a nearby Peak of interest as well.

Since Cetylpyridinium Chloride is present in numerous household products that may require HPLC analysis, this is an important point to consider even for Assays where the analyte Peak has good Symmetry.
