COSMOSIL Cholester

Specialty for Structual Isomers / Hydrophobic interaction and planarity selectivity

COSMOSIL Cholester is a new silica based RP column which employs a cholestery bonded phase. Cholester provides enhanced selectivity over traditional C18 materials and greater performance in separating isomers or other closely related compounds. Cholester is ideal for method development and serves as an excellent alternative to traditional C18 columns.

Hydrophobic Interaction

Separation of Alkylbenzene (comparison with hydrophobicity)
Figure shows the comparison of hydrophobic interaction with competitive C18 and C30 columns. Cholester provides the same hydrphobicity as alkyl group bonded type (C18. C30). It is not necessary to change the analytical conditions when replacing C18 or C30 columns with Cholester.

Conditions:  

Column Size 4.6 mmI.D. x 150 mm
Mobile Phase Methanol : Water = 80 : 20
Flow Rate 1.0 ml/min

Planarity Selectivity

The stationary phase of Cholester has very rigit structure and can distinguish different molecular shapes. Cholester offers improved separation for structurally similar compunds that are difficult to analyze with alkyl group bonded materials (C18 and C30). As in the following example Cholester retains planar Triphenylene longer than stereoscopic o-Therphenyl.

 

Planarity Selectivity (Planarity : o-Terphenyl < Triphenylene)
Cholester shows greater planarity selectivity.

 Conditions:  

Column Size 4.6 mmI.D. x 150 mm
Mobile Phase 90% Methanol
Flow Rate 1.0 ml/min
Temperature 30 oC
Detection UV 254 nm
Sample
1. o-Terphenyl (0.10 µg)
2. Triphenylene (0.01 µg)

Applications

Characteristics of separation
Aryl Halides (Relative strengths of nucleophiles : Methyl < Chlorine < Bromine)
Cholester is more selective for Aryl Halides.

Conditions:  

Column Size 4.6 mmI.D. x 150 mm
Mobile Phase 60% Methanol
Flow Rate 1.0 ml/min
Temperature 30 oC
Detection UV 254 nm
Sample
1. Toluene (3.3 µg)
2. Chlorobenzene (3.3 µg)
3. Bromobenzene (3.3 µg)
 

 

Steroids like D Vitamins
Cholesteryl bonded groups are very rigid structures and offer improved separation of compounds that are difficult to analyze with alkyl group bonded materials.

 Conditions:  

Column Size 4.6 mmI.D. x 150 mm
Mobile Phase 100% Methanol
Flow Rate 1.0 ml/min
Temperature 30 oC
Detection UV 265 nm
Sample
1. Vitamin D2 (0.3 µg)
2. Vitamin D3 (0.1 µg)
 
 
 

Diasteromers like Stilbenes
Cholester offers improved resolution of geometric isomers.

Conditions:  

Column Size 4.6 mmI.D. x 150 mm
Mobile Phase 70% Methanol
Flow Rate 1.0 ml/min
Temperature 30 oC
Detection UV 254 nm
Sample

2. trans-Stilbene (0.2 µg)
 
 

Position isomers like Chloroacetophenones and Terphenyls
Generally isomers of disubstituted benzene are difficult to separate with C18 because their structual and polar characteristics are veryb similar. In these cases COSMOSIL Cholester works very well.

Conditions:  

Column Size 4.6 mmI.D. x 150 mm
Mobile Phase 50% Methanol
Flow Rate 1.0 ml/min
Temperature 30 oC

Usage Information

Column5 µm Cholester
I.D. (mm)2.03.04.610.020.028.0
Washing method 1. Remove buffer, salts and/or acid from column: wash for 10-15 min. using the mobile phase last used, without buffer, salts or acid. For example, if your mobile phase was 50:50 methanol/20 mmol/l phosphate buffer, wash with 50:50 methanol/water.

2. (If you used a buffer, always do step 1 first!) Remove adsorbed compounds and fix unstable baselines by washing with methanol and/or THF.
Storage conditions Short-term (up to a week):
Remove buffer, salts and/or acid from column: wash for 10-15 min. using the mobile phase last used, without buffer, salts or acid. For example, if your mobile phase was 50:50 methanol/20 mmol/l phosphate buffer, wash with 50:50 methanol/water.

Long-term:
Remove buffer, salts and/or acid from column: wash for 10-15 min. using the mobile phase last used, without buffer, salts or acid. Then, replace the solvent with 70% methanol or acetonitrile : 30% water.

In either case, tightly plug the column, and store in a cool and dry place.
Usable pH range pH2~pH7.5
Max. pressure 20MPa 15MPa
Temperature range The maximum usable temperature is 60°C. However. for regular use, please use at a constant temperature between 20°C and 50°C.
Usable solvents Any solvent that will not dissolve the silica gel (such as alkaline solutions) or cleave the stationary phase (such as very acidic solutions) is usable.
Note: For solvents with high viscosity, please watch the system pressure and keep it below 20 MPa. Also, please wash the column after using acidic mobile phases or solvents with high freezing points.
Other instructions - Buffer concentration is usually sufficient at 0.005 - 0.02 mol/L.
- Always filter mobile phases using a 0.5 µm or finer filter before use.
