"Carotenoid separation is much better than on normal HPLC (C-18) column."
YMC Carotenoid is designed to show high recognition for structurally similar polar and nonpolar carotenoids. The YMC Carotenoid stationary phase provides sufficient phase thickness to enhance interaction with long chained molecules. Therefore, geometric and positional isomers of conjugated double bonding systems are recognised and resolved by the YMC Carotenoid phase. YMC Carotenoid can also be used for various analytes, including polar carotenes, polar and nonpolar xanthophylls, steroids, retinols and fat-soluble vitamins. The phase is an excellent choice for LC-MS applications.
