Analysis of sugars using the ACE NH2 and VWR Hitachi Chromaster
contributed by Ace |
Carbohydrates are one of the most important components of foodstuffs and beverages and contribute to taste and nutritional value. The determination of carbohydrates in beverages is important for nutritional information, quality control and can be useful in the detection of adulteration. The carbohydrate component of drinks is typically comprised of simple sugars including mono- and di-saccharides, which are readily analysed in HILIC mode using an amino bonded stationary phase. The ACE NH2 phase is an ultra-inert phase, bonded with a proprietary amino propyl ligand, which is ideal for the analysis of sugars. The high silica purity and proprietary bonding technology provides high robustness with excellent peak shape and column lifetime.
