      Highly-porous diatom biosilica stationary phase for thin-layer chromatography
      J.A. KRAAI, G.L. RORRER*, A.X. WANG (*School of Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering, Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR 97331, USA,

      J. of Chromatogr. A 1591, 162-170 (2019). TLC of malachite green (1) and fast green (2) on diatom biosilica (a nanostructured, porous stationary phase composed of randomly-deposited biosilica frustules isolated from living cells of diatom Pinnularia sp.) instead of conventional silica gel with 1-butanol - ethanol - water 9:1:1 and 1-butanol - acetic acid - water 5:1:2. Diatom biosilica reduced the flow velocity and permeability constant by a factor two compared to silica gel and thus improved the resolution of (1) and (2). The theoretical plate height for both analytes was reduced ten-fold with 1-butanol - acetic acid - water 5:1:2, and the difference in retention time between malachite green and fast green was increased (ΔhRF 26) with 1-butanol - ethanol - water 9:1:1.

      II. Principal-Components analysis. J. Planar Chromatogr. 20, 7-11 (2007). Study of chromatographic retention data for the 3,5-dinitrobenzoic acid esters of a homologous series of aliphatic C1 - C20 linear alcohols on five unconventional TLC stationary phases - rice starch, microcrystalline cellulose, aminoplast, talc, and paraffin oil-impregnated silica gel. The stationary phases were characterized by means of retention scores obtained by principal-components analysis.
