Epic HILIC-FL is useful for retention and separation of polar and non-compounds. Reversed-phase HPLC is widely used for separation of many pharmaceutical compounds. However, retention and separation of many polar analytes has proven to be a challenge. Many of these types of compounds are unretained or poorly retained on most conventional reversed-phase stationary phases, such as ODS. Fortunately, to deal with these types of analytes an alternative mode of chromatography can be utilized using polar stationary phases and highly organic mobile phases. This mode of chromatography has been utilized for many years and is referred to as “hydrophilic interaction chromatography” or HILIC. HILIC chromatography uses mobile phases containing between 5 – 20 % water for the retention of polar compounds.
