Flash chromatography is the primary technology for separating, purifying, and isolating both synthetic organic compounds and natural products. Until recently, automated flash purification systems were limited to user-selected detection and collection wavelengths to fractionate separated compounds from sample mixtures. In this application note we demonstrate how the advances in Isolera Spektra are used in the purification of a spinach extract.

Isolera Spektra provides definitive fraction purity assessment
in both 2-D and 3-D prior to any post flash analysis. With this
information chemists quickly know if a fraction contains a pure
product suitable for further mass and structure confirmation
or whether the impure fractions must be re-purified. This
knowledge improves synthesis throughput and avoids any
embarrassment of submitting impure fractions for analytical

The UV absorption spectrum of some solvents
overlaps with the product they dissolve, meaning
that fraction collection processes cannot distinguish
between solvent and product. Luckily, there is
technology that solves this problem.
Flash purification is a separation technique developed in 1978 by Professor W.C. Still that uses a stationary phase (a column or cartridge filled with an insoluble solid support) and a mobile phase (elution solvent mixture) to separate and purify a mixture of organic compounds.

Part No: P150Issued year: 2016File size: 0.39mbFile type: pdf
Interest in peptide-based therapeutics has risen dramatically over the last decade. More specifically, significant energy has been dedicated to cyclic peptides, their synthesis, their biological activity, and their biological stability as potential alternatives to their linear counterparts. However, synthesizing a cyclic peptide creates significant challenges not encountered in linear peptide synthesis.
Herein we present a synthesis of oxytocin describing optimization for fully automated, on-resin disulfide bond formation utilizing Branches™, a unique feature enabling visualization and specific programing for cyclic and branched peptide synthesis. We will highlight the transferability of this optimized synthesis to larger scale syntheses and conclude with the fully automated synthesis of cyclized oxytocin incorporating an isotopically labeled Leu residue, enabling use as an internal standard in MS experiments.

ISOLUTE Confirm HCX columns are based on cation exchange and C8 mixed mode chemistries. Basic drugs are therefore retained by two primary retention mechanisms - ionic and non-polar. This allows a more rigorous interference elution regime to be used, leading to a very clean final extract, as many non-polar interferences which are retained by a non-polar interaction alone, can be eluted selectively, prior to elution of the drug.

It is well known that traditional liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) provides very clean extracts prior to LC/MS analysis. Supported liquid extraction is analogous to traditional LLE, however, analyte partitioning takes place using an inert support material, rather than two immiscible liquids. This provides excellent extraction efficiencies while alleviating many of the tedious liquid handling issues associated with LLE.

The extraction of basic drugs from biological fluids using a purely non-polar retention mechanism (e.g. C4, C8 or C18) can lead to extracts that contain a large amount of non-polar co-extracted material that can interfere with subsequent analysis. Conversely, extraction mechanisms based on ion exchange interactions can be non-robust due to the variable ionic strength of the sample matrix.

Testing for drugs of abuse in oral fluids can strongly benefit the criminal justice field as a less invasive and cost-effective approach for drug detection when compared to blood or urine sampling. Oral fluid analysis has facilitated laboratory analysis for many drugs of abuse and is a constantly evolving analysis procedure which benefits from increasingly sensitive methods of detection. The Laser Diode Thermal Desorption (LDTD) source combined with Mass spectrometry is presented as a new screening tool for drug analysis in Oral Fluids. Analysis speed of LDTD provides accurate results in seconds in combination with exceptional specificity of MS instruments make a powerful platform for the screening of different drugs of abuse and new emerging drugs. Different extraction procedures are available; however those methods depend on specific drug conditions: basic or acid drugs / hydrophilic or hydrophobic. A new extraction approach, Supported Liquid Extraction (SLE+) is evaluated as generic extraction procedure.

Activated carbon is an adsorbent media used to remove colored compounds from solution. Using this media in the Biotage FLASH-AC cartridge as a packed bed improves adsorbent performance. Increasing the temperature of the solvent modifies adsorption and alters performance of the decolorization process. Elevated temperatures increase product solubility, therefore requiring less solvent than at room temperature. The increased concentration of product in a hot solution also simplifies crystallization.

Research in CNS drugs is primarily centered on nitrogen heterocycle chemistry. Basic amines are difficult to purify using traditional silica chromatography because of strong interactions between acidic silica and the molecules’ basic amine groups. These interactions cause band spreading and poor compound recovery. Solutions employed to counteract this phenomena include adding a competing amine (e.g. triethyl amine or ammonium hydroxide) to the flash chromatography solvent system or using reversed-phase HPLC with a buffered solvent system.
