Study design

HPLC method

Details on study design: HPLC method:
EQUIPMENT
- Apparatus: Agilent Technologies 1100, incorporating autosampler and workstation
- Type, material and dimension of analytical column: Waters XSelect HSS Cyano 5µm (4.6 x 150 mm id)
- Detection system: UV, Dead time and reference standards: 210 nm. Sample: 230 nm

Column temperature: 30°C
Mobile phase: 55:45 (v/v) methanol:purified water
pH of mobile phase:5.98
Flow-rate: 1.0 mL/min
Injection volume: 10 µL

DETERMINATION OF DEAD TIME
- Method: The dead time was determined by measuring the retention time of formamide (purity
99.94%, 631 mg/L solution in 55:45 (v/v) methanol:purified water).

Batch equilibrium or other method

Details on test conditions:
The calibration curve for the reference standards showed good first order correlation (R = 0.9651) and the retention times between duplicate injections for each solution were consistent, indicating that the HPLC method was valid for the estimation of the adsorption coefficient of the test item.

Based on dissociation constants estimates for the boronic acid and alcohol functional groups (9.2 ± 0.5 and 10.7 ± 0.8), the unionized form of the test item would dominate within the environmentally relevant pH range of 5.5 to 7.5. Therefore only a single evaluation, using an approximately neutral pH mobile phase, was performed.
