Application Note: Analyzing Phenolic Pollutants in Water Using U-HPLC
1 May 2013

Phenolic compounds are of particular environmental importance due to their relatively high toxicity at low levels and their presence in environmental waters and organic matter. In this application note, the effect on the separation and analysis speed of a number of priority phenols cited within the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and European Union (EU) lists of priority pollutants are assessed by changing the chemistry and reducing the particle size of the stationary phase.
