HPLC method

Details on study design: HPLC method:
Approximately 0.02 g of test substance was placed in a tared 20 mL LSC vial, dissolved in 10 mL of tetrahydrofuran (THF), brought to volume and mixed well before analysis. A calibration curve using structurally related reference compounds of known Log Koc was established, using methanol or mobile phase (55:45 ratio of MeOH:H2O). The test substance and reference compounds of known Log Koc were injected into an HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) system. A calibration curve using retention time (Log t) versus Log Koc, was calculated by linear regression analysis from the injection data of the reference compounds. The calibration curve was calculated from literature values for the Log Koc of the reference compounds and the corresponding capacity factor, k, calculated as:

k = (tr-to) / to where tr is the retention time of the reference compound

From this curve, the unknown Log Koc of the test substance was estimated from its retention time by making injections of small samples of the test substance following identical column, elution, and detection parameters used to establish the calibration curve. The Log Koc of the test substance was determined by calculating the capacity factor (k) of the test substance. The HPLC operational parameters were as follows: Varian ProstarHIPLC equipted with a Varian Model 410 autosampler and a partial loop injector. The column was a Phenomenex Luna Cyano with 5 m particle size x 250 mm length x 4.6 mm inner diameter and the data was analyzed with Galaxie System software. The detector was a uv diode array. The Mobile Phase was a 55:45 ratio of Methanol: Water at a Flow rate of 0.8 mL/min. The Injection volume was 10 uL and the Detector wavelength was 210 nm The column was operated at ambient temperature and the Attenuation / Chart Speed was Autoscale. The Threshold / Peak Width was 1000 /2.
