Potential applications of a novel porous disperse diamond (PDD) phase in high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) were studied. It is noted that this phase shows the best separation characteristics in pure water. It is shown that the PDD column works efficiently in both normal-phase and reverse-phase HPLC systems and mainly separates components via hydrogen bonding and weaker hydrophobic interactions. The superior mechanical strength and chemical stability in a wide pH range provide an interesting potential for use of porous diamonds in HPLC.
