      The influence of metallic impurities on the free silanol activity of commercial thin-layer chromatography adsorbents demonstrated by retention changes of basic/amphoteric compounds such as peptides
      R. GWARDA*, W. SZWERC, M. KOZAK, A. TUREK, A. TORBICZ, A. CHOMICKI, R. KOCJAN, D. MATOSIUK, T. DZIDO (*Department of Physical Chemistry, Chair of Chemistry, Faculty of Pharmacy with Medical Analytics Division, Medical University of Lublin, 4a Chod?ki St., 20-093 Lublin, Poland,

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 30, 375-385 (2017). HPTLC of synthetic peptides on silica gel and RP-18 with water and methanol with the addition of proper ion-pairing reagent to study the influence of metallic impurities on the retention and efficiency of separation of peptides. Detection by dipping into 2 % ninhydrin solution in acetone ‒ methanol ‒ glacial acetic acid 25:25:2. The contents of trace elements in areas scraped off from the chromatographic plates were determined by flame technique of atomic absorption spectrometry. The impurities present in the adsorbents may cause characteristic disruption of solute zone shape and overall distortion of the chromatogram during the development.
