Abstract: High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) has become the method of choice for carotenoid analysis. Although a number of normal-phase columns have been reported, reverse-phase columns are the most widely used stationary phases for the analysis of these molecules. C18 and C30 stationary phases have provided good resolution for the separation of geometrical isomers and carotenoids with similar polarity. More recently ultra high-performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) has been used. UHPLC has a number of dis…
