Search for orthogonal mechanisms for multidimensional separations

The detailed characterization of complex samples requires a dramatic increase of the resolution and selectivity of the separation method.

  • Comprehensive hyphenation of both dimensions
  • Different retention mechanism in both dimensions.
  • Thorough studies on the measurement of orthogonally illustrated by experiments in two dimensional comprehensive liquid chromatography (LCxLC)
  • Innovating developments in the field of data analysis
  • Application to the separation of phospholipids families by LCxLC (ANR Omégasomes)
