Abstract: The kinetic performance of 0.5 mm × 50 mm columns packed with 2.7 μm Halo-C(18) core-shell particles and 3 μm EP-120-C(18) fully porous particles fitted on an Eksigent LC-Express Ultra μHPLC system were measured. The instrument contribution to band broadening was obtained by directly connecting the injection valve and the detector cell with a short, narrow PEEKSIL tube. The connections between the column and the connecting tubes, the column endfittings and its frits contribute to band spreading and are respons…
