Abstract :
The influence of the pore size of a chromatographic reversed phase material on the adsorption equilibria and diffusion of two industrially relevant peptides (i.e. a small synthetic peptide and insulin) has been studied using seven different reversed phase HPLC materials having pore sizes ranging from 90 إ to 300 إ. The stationary phase pore size distribution was obtained by inverse size exclusion measurement (iSEC). The effect of the pore size on the mass transfer properties of the materials was evaluated from Van Deemter experiments. It has been shown that the lumped mass transfer coefficient increases linearly with the average pore size. The Henry coefficient and the impurity selectivity were determined in diluted conditions. The saturation capacity of the main peptides was determined in overloaded conditions using the inverse method (i.e. peak fitting). It was shown that the adsorption equilibria of the peptides on the seven materials is well described by a surface-specific adsorption isotherm. Based on this a lumped kinetic model has been developed to model the elution profile of the two peptides in overloaded conditions and to simulate the purification of the peptide from its crude mixture. It has been found that the separation of insulin from its main impurity (i.e. desamido-insulin) was not affected by the pore size. On the other hand, in the case of the synthetic peptide, it was found that the adsorption of the most significant impurity decreases with the pore size. This decrease is probably due to an increase in silanol activity with decreasing pore size.
