Liquid chromatography is a widely used analytical technique in various fields such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, food and beverage, environmental monitoring, and more.
Most popular type of liquid chromatography is reversed phase (sup. to 75%), which in general so far it is not a “green” analytical method.
Up to now it is mainly based on acetonitrile and still uses relatively large columns (the most used column dimension still is 250x4.6mm).
However, there are a few mobile phase tweaking possibilities how to make chromatography in more sustainable without compromising performance of chromatographical separation.
