      Use of Thin-Layer and Over-Pressured-Layer Chromatography to study the hydrophobicity of homologous s-triazines
      Malgorzata JANICKA (Faculty of Chemistry, Department of Physical Chemistry, Maria Curie-Sklodowska University, M. Curie-Sklodowska Sq. 3, 20-031 Lublin, Poland;

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 20, 267-274 (2007). Comparison of retention factors in pure water, log kw, determined by linear extrapolation and by a numerical method based on Oscik’s equation, and calculated values of log P as hydrophobicity indices for nine homologues s-triazines. The effect of mobile phase pH on solute retention was investigated as well as the effect of mobile and stationary phase properties on chromatographic behavior; 3 different organic modifiers (dioxane, acetonitrile, and tetrahydrofuran) and two stationary phases (RP-8 and RP-18) were used. Correlations of calculated log P values and log kw with carbon number confirm the usefulness of chromatographic techniques for studying the hydrophobicity of organic compounds. TLC on RP-18 with buffer - methanol mixtures in saturated sandwich chambers. Detection under UV light at 254 nm.

      Linear modeling of the soil-water partition coefficient normalized to organic carbon content by reversed-phase thin-layer chromatography
      F. ANDRI?*, Sandra ŠEGAN, Aleksandra DRAMI?ANIN, Helena MAJSTOROVI?, Dusanka MILOJKOVI?-OPSENICA (*Fac. of Chem., Univ. of Belgrade, Studentski trg 12-16, P.O. Box 51, 11158 Belgrade, Serbia)

      J. Chromatogr. A 1458, 136–144, (2016). The soil-water partition coefficient normalized to the organic carbon content (KOC) influences the fate of organic compounds in the environment. This paper proposes a RP-TLC method for KOC determination as a simpler, yet equally accurate method as the official HPLC method. TLC on different systems, including RP-18 and cyano phases developed with methanol – water and acetonitrile – water mixtures. 50 different compounds such as phenols, benzodiazepines, triazine herbicides, and polyaromatic hydrocarbons were selected. A calibration set of 29 compounds with known logKOC values was used to build simple univariate calibrations, Principal Component Regression (PCR) and Partial Least Squares (PLS) models between logKOC and TLC retention parameters. The models exhibit good statistical performance and indicate that the cyano phase contributes better to logKOC modeling than the RP-18 phase. Comparison of the proposed TLC methods, the official HPLC method, and four in silico estimation approaches by using the non-parametric Sum of Ranking Differences(SRD) approach. The best estimations of logKOC values were achieved by simple univariate calibration of TLC retention data from cyano phase developed with 40–50 % methanol. In a Linear Solvation Energy Relationship study it was found that the more polar cyano phase in combination with methanol – water mixtures is the key to better modeling of logKOC through significant diminishing of dipolar and proton accepting influence of the mobile phase as well as enhancing molar refractivity in excess of the chromatographic systems.
