Separation of carotenes Reversed-phase HPLC is normally used for the separation of the hydrocarbon carotenes. Most C18 columns will give some separation but the selectivity varies considerably with the different kinds of stationary phases. The main structural features that determine separation are: (i) Cyclic or acyclic end groups. g. lycopene (31) → γ-carotene (12) → β-carotene (3). γ-carotene (12) (ii) Double-bond position in cyclic end groups. For cyclic end groups the β ring has greater affinity for the stationary phase than does the ε ring, leading to the elution order ε-carotene (ε,ε-carotene, 20) → α-carotene (β,ε-carotene, 7) → β-carotene (β,β-carotene, 3).
