Abstract In hydrophilic interaction chromatography (HILIC), best results are obtained with high concentrations of ACN. In the framework of green chromatography and the present shortage and very high price of this hazardous solvent, reversing the stationary phase to apolar and the mobile phase to aqueous can be of interest for several applications. The features of the aqueous RP technique called per aqueous LC (PALC) are illustrated with the analysis of catecholamines, nucleobases, acids, and amino acids. The ca. three-fold higher viscosity of water compared to ACN has consequences on the shape of the Van Deemter plot. For dopamine (N = 26.450 on a 25 cm x 4.6 mm id, 5 microm bare silica column), a reduced plate height of 1.9 at an u(opt) of 0.3 mm/s was calculated. The plate number, however, strongly depends on pH and ionic strength. As in RP separations, retention is shortened by adding an organic modifier. In the framework of green chromatography, the biodegradable ethanol was used. On the other hand, retention increased by lengthening the carbon chain of ion-pair reagents supporting the RP mechanism as well.
