Development and application of a high resolution liquid chromatographic method for the analysis of complex pigment distributions.

Department of Chemistry, University of York, Heslington, UK.


Ternary and binary gradient systems have been developed for the high-performance liquid chromatographic analysis of complex pigment distributions typical of natural samples. Improved chromatographic resolution reveals significantly more pigment components in extracts from a sediment (Priest Pot, Cumbria, UK), a microbial mat (les Salines de la Trinital, South Catalonia, Spain) and a culture (C. phaeobacteroides) including novel bacteriochlorophyll derivatives. The methods developed are directly suited to LC-MS analysis and the automated acquisition of MS/MS data for pigments.
