Can I get a sharper peak by injecting my sample in a weaker injection solvent?

> back to HPLC FAQ

In this scenario, the sample is initially concentrated onto the head of the column and moves through the column in a tight band.

This technique is sometimes used to minimize band broadening for a larger volume sample injection.
Keep in mind that your sample components must be soluble in the mobile phase as well, in order for this to work.
