Two high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) experiments were developed for Quantitative Analysis (CHEM 230). The first modified an existing experiment by replacing acetonitrile with methanol in the mobile phase to reduce the associated costs and environmental hazards. In the second, a new biochemistry-specific HPLC experiment was developed. Biochemical samples were digested and the resulting polypeptides were separated and quantified by HPLC with UV-Vis detection. Adding a more biochemistry-related experiment to Quantitative Analysis will benefit the large number of VU students pursuing careers in health fields and biochemical research.
