      Solvent selectivity in normal-phase TLC
      L.R. SNYDER (LC Resources, 26 Silverwood Ct, Orinda, CA 94563, USA;

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 21, 315-323 (2008). The role of the mobile phase in controlling selectivity for adsorption chromatography - with either thin-layer plates or columns - is reviewed and expanded. The use of different solvent mixtures of varying selectivity in normal-phase chromatography is now on a firm theoretical and practical basis. The choice of a more polar component (B-solvent) of a binary solvent mixture (A/B) largely determines relative retention and resolution. Maximum differences in selectivity are achieved by the use of two mobile phases where the B-solvent is either very polar (requiring a lower % B for desirable values of k) or relatively nonpolar (requiring a higher % B).

      Prediction of RM values for disubstituted benzene derivatives
      W. WARDAS*, A. PYKA, (*Silesian Acad. of Med., Fac. Pharm., 4 Jagiellonska Street, 41-200 Sosnowiek, Poland)

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 3, 425-528 (1990). It is proposed the RM values of substances analyzed on silica with tertiary mobile phases may be predicted from one-parameter regression equations. Experimental RM values for a group of isomers investigated have been compared with theoretical values calculated both on the basis of the author’s own studies (RMy = f(RMx)), and from Oscik’s theory. Substances chromatographed: o-, m- and p-isomers of aminophenol, ethylphenol, cresol, nitroaniline, nitrophenol, toluidine, chloroaniline, chlorophenol, nitrotoluene, chlorotoluene.

      Computer-assisted optimization of HPTLC separations of mixtures of unknown composition using UV spectra
      Q.-S. WANG*, Z.-P. ZHAN, Y.-H. WANG, (*Nat. Lab. of Elemento-Organ. Chem., Nankai Univ., Tianjin 300071, P.R. China)

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 6, 66-69 (1993). Use of a computer-assisted method to select the optimum mobile phase composition for the HPTLC separation of an unknown mixture of a pesticide intermediate. The method is based on spot order identification, by comparison of the UV spectra of spots, followed by single-factor optimization. Excellent agreement was obtained between predicted data and experimental results.

      Computer-assisted optimization of mobile phase compositions and development distance selectivity in gradient two-step development high-performance thin-layer chromatography
      B.W. YAN, L. ZHANG, Q. S. WANG, (National Laboratory of Elemento-Organic Chemistry, Nankai University, Tianjin 300071, China)

      Chinese J. Chem. 14, 354-358 (1996). Presentation of a computer-assisted method for optimization of mobile phase composition and development distance in gradient two-step development HPTLC. The method is based on a system which can predict the final Rf values for gradient two-step development from values measured using five preliminary runs. The statistical scanning method is then used for optimization, using Rf difference as the selection criterion. The method was evaluated using a mixture of eight components and showed excellent agreement between predicted and experimental results.

      Optimization of ternary mobile phases in reversed-phase thin-layer chromatography by use of a mixture-design approach with the solvation-parameter model
      N.C. DIAS, C.F. POOLE* (Dept. of Chem., Wayne State Univ., Detroit, MI 48202, USA)

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 13, 337-347 (2000). HPTLC on cyano phases with five binary and ten ternary mobile phases containing methanol, acetonitrile, and water. A retention model was formulated at each composition using the solvation-parameter model. A mixture-design approach was then used to model the individual system constants as a continuous function of mobile phase composition, producing system surfaces from which retention surfaces could be calculated for method development. Regression analysis for the full data set indicated that the mixture-design models can be used to estimate solute migration properties with accuracy similar to that of the original solvation-parameter models.
