      Thin-layer chromatography of aldopentose and aldohexose derivatives
      S.M. PETROVIC*, E. LONCAR, M. POPSAVIN, V. POPSAVIN, (*Dept. of Anal. Chem., Fac. of Techn., Univ. of Novi Sad, Bul. Cara Lazara 1, P.O. Box 340, 21000 Novi Sad, Yugoslavia)

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 10, 406-410 (1997). To study the relationship between chemical structure and retention behavior in TLC on silica, the retention constants of variously substituted 1,2-O-isopropylidene derivatives of aldohexoses and 1,2-O-cyclohexylidene derivatives of aldopentoses were measured as a function of the composition of eight binary mobile phases. The slopes and intercepts of the linear relationships between the retention constant (RM) and the logarithm of the volume fraction of the polar mobile phase component were calculated and are discussed in relation to solute and mobile phase characteristics. The RF values and relative retention of compounds depend largely on the retention behavior of their substituents.
