Ionic Strength of Additives can affect your Retention Times.

Ionic strength has a smaller effect in Cogent TYPE-C Columns when used in Aqueous Normal Phase (ANP) than in methods with HILIC columns because the ANP mechanism is a type of “competitive adsorption” in the adsorbed layer with Acetonitrile, on the silica-hydride surface.  

Ionic strength would be expected to have some impact on this processes.
