An Analysis of 8 Benzodiazepine Compounds

This isocratic method demonstrates an effective method for 8 different benzodiazepine compounds with excellent separations. Using the column in this method provides different selectivity and improved efficiency compared to a standard C18 column.


1. Oxazepam, 2. Lorazepam, 3. Nitrazepam, 4. Alprazolam
5. Clonazepam, 6. Temazepam, 7. Flunitrazepam, 8. Diazepam
