Application Note: Rapid Analysis of B1 B2 B3 B6 in Vitamin Tablets with the Varian 920-LC and Pursuit™ XRs C18 Column
30 July 2008
Vitamins are organic or organometallic compounds that are required for essential metabolic reactions in living organisms and are essential for normal growth and development. Vitamins are relatively unstable during processing and storage, therefore qualitative and quantitative analyses of vitamins are important.
This application note explains how the Varian 920-LC and Varian Pursuit XRs column can provide an efficient analysis of four water soluble vitamins Thiamine (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Nicotiamide (B3) and Pyridoxine (B6) with run times for separation of four components in less then four minutes.
