Rapid anion-exchange chromatography of nucleotides in physiological fluids

  • D. Perrett
Short Communications


The role of pH in the gradient elution of nucleotides and related compounds from short high efficiency microparticulate anion-exchange columns has been evaluated. Only at pH 3 could good resolution be obtained and a system capable of the separation of 22 nucleotides from physiological extracts in 13 minutes has been described. Other factors affecting the satisfactory operation of the system are discussed.
