Polymer-coated cation-exchange stationary phases on the basis of silica

The procedure of polymer coating of preferably inorganic porous particle support materials for LC has been applied to the preparation of a new type of weak cationexchange phases. A special copolymer of butadiene and maleic acid could be immobilized on silica by cross-linking effected with radical starters such as peroxides or γ-radiation.

The chromatographic properties of such materials proved to be excellent regarding efficiency, ion-exchange capacity and selectivity, as well as chemical stability also in comparison to other, commercially available, materials. Test measurements were successfully performed with ionic or ionizable inorganic and organic solutes over the entire applicable pH-range of the mobile phase which also contained organic modifiers. A special feature of the new type of cation-exchange phase is the minor contribution of hydrophobic (lipophilic) interaction to the retention mechanism besides the actual ion-exchange process.
