Glucose and maltose derivatives separated on a Metrosep Carb 2 column applying a flow gradient

Maltodextrin is a polysaccharide consisting of glucose units. Maltodextrins are classified as dextrose equivalents (DE, with DE = 3–20). This application shows the determination of glucose (DE = 1), maltose (DE = 2) till maltoheptaose (DE = 7). The separation is achieved on a Metrosep Carb 2 - 250/4.0 column with subsequent pulsed amperometric detection (PAD).
