Hilic HPLC Column FAQ

Main Features of Hilic Column?

HILIC (Hydrophilic Interaction Liquid Chromatography) columns are a type of HPLC column that is specifically designed for the separation of polar compounds. Polar compounds are those that have a strong affinity for water. Traditional reversed-phase HPLC columns are not very effective at separating polar compounds, as they tend to elute (come out of the column) too quickly.

Here are some of the main features of HILIC columns:

  • Hydrophilic stationary phase: HILIC columns have a stationary phase that is hydrophilic, or water-loving. This stationary phase can be made from a variety of materials, such as silica gel or bonded phases.
  • High organic mobile phase: The mobile phase in HILIC chromatography is typically high in organic solvent (e.g., acetonitrile) and low in water. This is opposite to reversed-phase chromatography, where the mobile phase is typically high in water and low in organic solvent.
  • Reversed elution order: Compared to reversed-phase chromatography, HILIC columns elute analytes in the opposite order. More polar analytes will elute later than less polar analytes.
  • Strong retention of polar compounds: HILIC columns are able to strongly retain polar compounds that would be poorly retained by reversed-phase columns. This makes them ideal for the separation of a wide variety of polar compounds, including pharmaceuticals, natural products, and metabolites.

Here are some of the advantages of using HILIC columns:

  • Improved separation of polar compounds: HILIC columns can provide better separation of polar compounds than reversed-phase columns.
  • Reduced ion suppression: HILIC columns can help to reduce ion suppression, which can be a problem with some mass spectrometry techniques.
  • Increased compatibility with mass spectrometry: HILIC columns are often more compatible with mass spectrometry than reversed-phase columns.

Here are some of the disadvantages of using HILIC columns:

  • Higher cost: HILIC columns can be more expensive than reversed-phase columns.
  • Limited range of stationary phases: There is a more limited range of stationary phases available for HILIC columns than for reversed-phase columns.
  • Slower analysis times: HILIC columns can sometimes result in slower analysis times than reversed-phase columns.

Some Applications of Hilic Column

Hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) is a powerful separation technique that has found numerous applications, particularly for the analysis of polar and hydrophilic compounds.

Here are some key applications of HILIC columns:

1.Separation of Biomolecules

Glycans and Glycoconjugates: HILIC is widely used for the separation and analysis of glycans, glycopeptides, and glycoproteins. It provides excellent resolution and selectivity for these highly polar compounds.
Peptides and Proteins: HILIC is effective for separating polar and hydrophilic peptides and proteins, including membrane proteins, histones, and their variants with different modifications (acetylation, methylation, phosphorylation).

2. Oligonucleotides: 

HILIC shows potential for improved resolution in the analysis of complex oligonucleotides due to its ability to separate polar compounds.

Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Applications
1. Polar Drugs and Metabolites:
HILIC is suitable for analyzing polar pharmaceuticals, drug metabolites, and other small polar molecules that are poorly retained in reversed-phase LC.
2. Metabolomics and Biomarker Analysis:
HILIC is valuable for the analysis of polar metabolites, biomarkers, and other small molecules present in biological fluids and tissues.
Complementary to Reversed-Phase LC
3. Two-Dimensional LC (2D-LC):
HILIC is highly orthogonal to reversed-phase LC, making it an ideal technique for comprehensive 2D-LC separations, especially when coupled with mass spectrometry (LC-MS).
4. Fractionation and Sample Cleanup:
HILIC can be used in combination with solid-phase extraction (SPE) or other techniques to fractionate and clean up complex samples before separation by reversed-phase LC or other methods.

So, As we know, HILIC has proven to be a powerful and versatile technique, complementing traditional reversed-phase LC and expanding the range of separations possible for polar and hydrophilic compounds in various fields, including biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and biomedical research.

Frequently Asked Questions

A HILIC (Hydrophilic Interaction Liquid Chromatography) column is a type of analytical column used in liquid chromatography that separates analytes based on their hydrophilicity. It contains a polar stationary phase that attracts and retains hydrophilic (water-loving) compounds through mechanisms like hydrogen bonding, dipole-dipole interactions, and electrostatic forces. HILIC is complementary to reversed-phase chromatography and is particularly useful for separating highly polar and ionizable compounds that are poorly retained by non-polar stationary phases.

  1. Excellent selectivity for polar and hydrophilic compounds: HILIC provides superior separation of highly polar analytes like glycans, peptides, nucleic acids, metabolites, and polar drugs/metabolites that are poorly retained in reversed-phase LC.
  2. Orthogonal selectivity to reversed-phase LC: HILIC offers an orthogonal separation mechanism, making it ideal for 2D-LC setups and comprehensive analysis when combined with reversed-phase separations.
  3. Compatible with mass spectrometry: HILIC mobile phases containing high organic content are MS-friendly and facilitate efficient ionization and detection of analytes.
  4. Improved peak shapes: For ionizable compounds, HILIC can provide sharper peaks compared to ion-exchange chromatography by reducing secondary interactions.

Common HILIC stationary phases include bare silica, amino, amide, diol, zwitterionic, and polymer-based phases. Zwitterionic phases like the ZIC-HILIC contain both positive and negative charges, reducing undesirable ionic interactions while still providing HILIC retention. Polymer-based phases offer unique selectivity and high pH stability.

Key parameters to optimize HILIC separations include mobile phase composition (acetonitrile percentage, buffer type/concentration), pH, column temperature, and flow rate. Higher acetonitrile content increases retention, while buffers control ionic interactions. Column temperature can influence selectivity. A systematic screening of conditions is often required to achieve the desired resolution.

HILIC mobile phases are quite unique compared to other chromatography techniques like reversed-phase HPLC. Here’s the breakdown:

Key Components:

  • High Organic Content (60-70%+): The bulk of the mobile phase in HILIC is a strong organic solvent, typically acetonitrile (ACN). This creates a weak interaction with the polar stationary phase.
  • Low Aqueous Content (3-10%+): A small percentage of water or another polar solvent like methanol is added. This forms a water-rich layer on the stationary phase for analyte partitioning.
  • Buffers (Optional): Buffers can be included to control pH and influence analyte ionization and retention. Popular choices include ammonium formate and ammonium acetate due to their compatibility with MS detection and solubility in high-ACN environments.

Important Points:

  • Water is the Strong Solvent: Unlike reversed-phase, where water is the weak solvent, water acts as the stronger solvent in HILIC, eluting more polar analytes later.
  • Methanol Not Ideal: While methanol is a polar solvent, it’s generally not recommended in HILIC because it can disrupt the formation of the water layer.
  • Mobile Phase Sensitivity: HILIC separations can be sensitive to small changes in mobile phase composition, especially the organic solvent percentage.
