Retained Isocratically or With a Gradient

This cyclic Octapeptide can be retained with simple Isocratic Mobile Phase conditions of 50:50 Solvent A / Solvent B (see Figure I). In addition, use of a Gradient produces a sharper Peak if desired (Figure II). Note, that the Gradient starts at an unusually high percent of Water (50%) for an Aqueous Normal Phase (ANP) application, due to the highly polar nature of the molecule.

With its two basic Amino Acid residues, the Octapeptide may lead to tailing due to silanolic interactions on some conventional Silica-based HPLC stationary phases, but here the peak shape is very symmetrical.
