Abstract [en]

This study presents a systematic investigation of factors influencing the chromatographic separation of diastereomers of phosphorothioated pentameric oligonucleotides as model solutes. Separation was carried out under ion-pairing conditions using an XBridge C18 column. For oligonucleotides with a single sulfur substitution, the diastereomer selectivity was found to increase with decreasing carbon chain length of the tertiary alkylamine used as an ion-pair reagent. Using an ion-pair reagent with high selectivity for diastereomers, triethylammonium, it was found the selectivity increased with decreased ion-pair concentration and shallower gradient slope. Selectivity was also demonstrated to be dependent on the position of the modified linkage. Substitutions at the center of the pentamer resulted in higher diastereomer selectivity compared to substitutions at either end. For mono-substituted oligonucleotides, the retention order and stereo configuration were consistently found to be correlated, with Rp followed by Sp, regardless of which linkage was modified. The type of nucleobase greatly affects the observed selectivity. A pentamer of cytosine has about twice the diastereomer selectivity of that of thymine. When investigating the retention of various oligonucleotides eluted using tributylammonium as the ion-pairing reagent, no diastereomer selectivity could be observed. However, retention was found to be dependent on both the degree and position of sulfur substitution as well as on the nucleobase. When analyzing fractions collected in the front and tail of overloaded injections, a significant difference was found in the ratio between Rp and Sp diastereomers, indicating that the peak broadening observed when using tributylammonium could be explained by partial diastereomer separation.

Abstract [en]

We investigated and compared the robustness of supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) separations of the peptide gramicidin, using either isocratic or gradient elution. This was done using design of experiments in a design space of co-solvent fraction, water mass fraction in co-solvent, pressure, and temperature. The density of the eluent (CO2-MeOH-H2O) was experimentally determined using a Coriolis mass flow meter to calculate the volumetric flow rate required by the design. For both retention models, the most important factor was the total co-solvent fraction and water mass fraction in co-solvent. Comparing the elution modes, we found that gradient elution was more than three times more robust than isocratic elution. We also observed a relationship between the sensitivity to changes and the gradient steepness and used this to draw general conclusions beyond the studied experimental system. To test the robustness in a practical context, both the isocratic and gradient separations were transferred to another laboratory. The gradient elution was highly reproducible between laboratories, whereas the isocratic system was not. Using measurements of the actual operational conditions (not the set system conditions), the isocratic deviation was quantitatively explained using the retention model. The findings indicate the benefits of using gradient elution in SFC as well as the importance of measuring the actual operational conditions to be able to explain observed differences between laboratories when conducting method transfer.

Abstract [en]

The overreaching purpose of this study is to evaluate new approaches for determining the optimal operational and column conditions in chromatography laboratories, i.e., how best to select a packing material of proper particle size and how to determine the proper length of the column bed after selecting particle size. As model compounds, we chose two chiral drugs for preparative separation: omeprazole and etiracetam. In each case, two maximum allowed pressure drops were assumed: 80 and 200 bar. The processes were numerically optimized (mechanistic modeling) with a general rate model using a global optimization method. The numerical predictions were experimentally verified at both analytical and pilot scales. The lower allowed pressure drop represents the use of standard equipment, while the higher allowed drop represents more modern equipment. For both compounds, maximum productivity was achieved using short columns packed with small-particle size packing materials. Increasing the allowed backpressure in the separation leads to an increased productivity and reduced solvent consumption. As advanced numerical calculations might not be available in the laboratory, we also investigated a statistically based approach, i.e., the Taguchi method (empirical modeling), for finding the optimal decision variables and compared it with advanced mechanistic modeling. The Taguchi method predicted that shorter columns packed with smaller particles would be preferred over longer columns packed with larger particles. We conclude that the simpler optimization tool, i.e., the Taguchi method, can be used to obtain “good enough” preparative separations, though for accurate processes, optimization, and to determine optimal operational conditions, classical numerical optimization is still necessary

Abstract [en]

The need to determine the actual operational conditions, instead of merely using the set operational conditions, was investigated for in packed supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) by design of experiments (DoE) using a most important type of compounds, pharmaceutical basics, as models. The actual values of temperature, pressure, and methanol levels were recorded and calculated from external sensors, while the responses in the DoE were the retention factors and selectivity. A Kromasil CelluCoat columh was used as the stationary phase, carbon dioxide containing varying methanol contents as the mobile phase, and the six racemates of alprenolol, atenolol, metoprolol, propranolol, clenbuterol, and mianserin were selected as model solutes. For the retention modeling, the most important term was the methanol fraction followed by the temperature and pressure. Significant differences (p<0.05) between most of the coefficients in the retention models were observed when comparing models from set and actual conditions. The selectivity was much less affected by operational changes, and therefore was not severely affected by difference between set and actual conditions. The temperature differences were usually small, maximum +/- 1.4 degrees C, whereas the pressure differences were larger, typically approximately +10.5 bar. The set and actual fractions of methanol also differed, usually by +/- 0.4 percentage points. A cautious conclusion is that the primary reason for the discrepancy between the models is a mismatch between the set and actual methanol fractions. This mismatch is more serious in retention models at low methanol fractions. The study demonstrates that the actual conditions should almost always be preferred. (C) 2017 Elsevier B.V.

Abstract [en]

Betulin from birch bark was extracted using two principally different extraction methodologies - classical Reflux Boiling (RB) and Pressurized Liquid Extraction (PLE). The extraction methods were analyzed based on both recovery and purity as well as for RB industrial feasibility. The purity and recovery for the different extraction methods were analyzed using High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) coupled with three different detection principles: Diode Array Detection (DAD), Mass Spectrometry (MS) and Charged Aerosol Detection (CAD). The chromatographic purity was determined by all detections whereas the DAD was used also for complementary gravimetric calculations of the purity of the extracts. The MS detection (in MS and MS/MS modes) was mainly used to characterize the impurities. Two steps to increase the purity of RB extracts were evaluated - pre-boiling the bark in water and precipitation by adding water to the extract. Finally, the methods were compared in terms of amounts of betulin produced and solvent consumed. The RB method including a precipitation step produced the highest purity of betulin. However, results indicate that PLE using three cycles with the precipitation step gives similar purities as for RB. The PLE method produced up to 1.6 times higher amount of extract compared to the RB method. However, the solvent consumption (liter solvent per gram product) for PLE was around 4.5 times higher as compared to the classical RB. PLE performed with only one extraction cycle gave results more similar to RB with 1.2 times higher yield and 1.4 times higher solvent consumption. The RB process was investigated on an industrial scale using a model approach and several important key-factors could be identified. The most energy demanding step was the recycling of extraction solvent which motivates that solvent consumption should be kept low and calculations show a great putative energy reduction by decreasing the ethanol concentration used in the RB process to lower than 90%.

Abstract [en]

Abstract In SFC the sample cannot be dissolved in the mobile phase, so it is often dissolved in pure modifier, or another liquid, sometimes resulting in serious distortions of the eluted peak profiles already at moderately high injection volumes. It is suspected the reasons for these effects are solvent strength mismatch and/or viscosity mismatch. This study presents a systematic and fundamental investigation of the origin of these peak deformations due to the injection solvent effects in SFC, using both systematic experiments and numerical modeling. The first set of experiments proved that the injection volume and the elution strength of the sample solution had a major impact of the shapes of the eluted peaks. Secondly, the sample band elution profile was numerically modeled on a theoretical basis assuming both un-retained and retained co-solvent injection plugs, respectively. These calculations quantitatively confirmed our first set of experiments but also pointed out that there is also an additional significant effect. Third, viscous fingering experiments were performed using viscosity contrast conditions imitating those encountered in SFC. These experiments clearly proved that viscous fingering effects play a significant role. A new method for determination of adsorption isotherms of solvents was also developed, called the “Retention Time Peak Method” (RTPM). The RTPM was used for fast estimation of the adsorption isotherms of the modifier and required using only two experiments.

Abstract [en]

The retention behaviour of a homologous series of polyaromatic hydrocarbons was evaluated on two phenyl-type stationary phases in reversed phase supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC). These phases were the Synergi polar-RP phase and the Cosmosil 5PBB phase, both of which are polar end-capped and incorporate an ether in a propyl chain that tethers the phenyl ring to the silica surface. The Cosmosil 5PBB phase also has five bromine atoms on the phenyl ring. The retention capacity of the Cosmosil column was substantially greater than the Synergi column. However, selectivity on the Cosmosil column was effectively independent of the acetonitrile modifier composition in the CO2 mobile phase, whereas, selectivity on the Synergi column was greatly affected by the acetonitrile modifier in the CO2 mobile phase. The results from this study showed that selectivity and retention studies in HPLC cannot be used to predict selectivity and retention behaviour in SFC. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Abstract [en]

The inverse method is a numerical method for fast estimation of adsorption isotherm parameters directly from a few overloaded elution profiles and it was recently extended to adsorption isotherm acquisition in gradient elution conditions. However, the inverse method in gradient elution is cumbersome due to the complex adsorption isotherm models found in gradient elution. In this case, physicochemically correct adsorption models have very long calculation times. The aim of this study is to investigate the possibility of using a less complex adsorption isotherm model, with fewer adjustable parameters, but with preserved/acceptable predictive abilities. We found that equal or better agreement between experimental and predicted elution profiles could be achieved with less complex models. By being able to select a model with fewer adjustable parameters, the calculation times can be reduced by at least a factor of 10.

Abstract [en]

A selectivity study was undertaken using two types of phenyl-type (Synergi polar RP and Cosmosil 5PBB) stationary phases in supercritical fluid chromatography. The mobile phases used in the SFC environment employed CO2 with methanol as the modifier. These columns were tested using linear polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons as the test solutes. The retention behaviour of these PAHs in SFC was compared to their behaviour in HPLC and there were very distinct differences. On the Synergi-polar stationary phase the PAH selectivity was highly dependent on the methanol modifier concentration, but in comparison on the Cosmosil column, the selectivity between the members of this PAH test group showed almost no change as a function of the methanol concentration, even though the retentivity on the Cosmosil stationary phase was far greater than the Synergi stationary. In fact, the mobile phase played a very passive role in the separations observed on the Cosmosil stationary phase. (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Abstract [en]

An approach for reliable transfer from analytical to preparative scale supercritical fluid chromatography was evaluated. Here, we accounted for the conditions inside the columns as well as to the fact that most analytical instruments are volume-controlled while most preparative scale units are mass-controlled. The latter is a particular problem when performing pilot scale experiments and optimizations prior to scaling up to production scale. This was solved by measuring the mass flow, the pressure and the temperature on the analytical unit using external sensors. Thereafter, it was revealed with a design of experiments approach that the methanol fraction and the pressure are the two most important parameters to control for preserved retention throughout the scale-up; for preserved selectivity the temperature was most important in this particular system. Using this approach, the resulting chromatograms from the preparative unit agreed well with those from the analytical unit while keeping the same column length and particles size. A brief investigation on how the solute elution volume varies with the volumetric flow rate revealed a complex dependency on pressure, density and apparent methanol content. Since the methanol content is a parameter of great importance to control during the scale up, we must be careful when changing operational and column design conditions which generates deviations in pressure, density and methanol content between different columns.
