Sit Up Straight
Mom knew a little something about the importance of looking sharp. This carries over to your chromatographic peaks, too. Improving peak asymmetry requires minimizing secondary interactions, adjusting loading capacity, modifying your injection solvent, and/or playing with pH. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just tell our peaks to sit up straight like mom used to?
You’ll Never Know Until You Try
This was a mom’s way of encouraging us to be adventurous! Curious about high speed run times in HPLC or high temperature GC analysis? Maybe it’s time to play with some new column technology:
•Core-shell HPLC/UHPLC columns offer increased resolution, shorter run times, and easy method transfer from one system to another.
•High Temperature GC columns give better resolution for fuels, long chain hydrocarbons, and high boiling petroleum products.
Don’t Make That Face or It Will Stay That Way!
Thank goodness mom was wrong on this one. But in all seriousness, if you apply all of mom’s lessons to your analytical work, you just might just find yourself stuck with a perma-smile on your face, and that’s not such a bad thing.
