For the first time calix[6]arene has been chemically combined with silica gel via a longer spacer to prepare calix[6]arene-bonded silica gel stationary phase for high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The separation of positional isomers and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons on the calix[6]arene-bonded phase was achieved with methanol-water as mobile phase. Some nucleosides were also separated on the bonded phase. The reversed-phase chromatographic performance of the bonded phase was studied. The results showed that the calix[6]arene-bonded phase was highly hydrophobic. A possible separation mechanism has been proposed.
