A rapid, sensitive, and Reproducible Method has been developed for this Antiretroviral Medication. The data below, (an overlay of 10 chromatograms ) illustrates how the compound can be adequately Retained and detected using this straightforward Method.

A Phenyl ring in the Column Stationary Phase provides strategic use of π-π Interaction with the Analyte making possible the use of a very simple, Mass Spec-friendly Mobile Phase with Formic Acid as an additive.
