Several low volatile organic solvents were evaluated as organic modifiers in eluents for HILIC separations of cisplatin species to optimize the on-line coupling of HILIC to inductively coupled plasma MS (ICP-MS). The aim was to identify a solvent giving low solvent vapor loading of the ICP, to maximize analyte sensitivity and minimize carbon depositions on instrumental parts, while retaining chromatographic performance. The best overall performance of the HILIC-ICP-MS system for the analysis of cisplatin was achieved using 1,4-dioxane as eluent, yielding high retention and an HILIC type retention mechanism, at the expense of a 50% drop in column efficiency due to the higher viscosity of 1,4-dioxane compared to the more commonly used HILIC solvent ACN. Using 1,4-dioxane as solvent in HILIC provides the best compromise between carbon deposition and separation efficiency among a series of high-boiling water-miscible solvents tested.
