Buffered mobile phases can basically be prepared in two ways:
While the pH is a well defined parameter in aqueous systems, it is not as straight forward to define or measure proton concentration in partially organic solvent systems.
It is therefore recommended to prepare the aqueous buffer, pH adjust it, filtering it through 0.4 µm and mixing it thereafter with the organic modifier. Attention should be given to the following points:
