Abstract : Using the cationic dye, methylene blue (as the chloride salt) to enhance the sensitivity of detection of species not possessing chromophores as a .0001 M component of a methanol/water mobile phase, a series of alcohols from ethanol to t-pentanol were separated on Partisil ODS with good baseline separation at submicrogram levels using spectrophotometric detection at 651 nm. A retention model based on dye-alcohol complex formation and equilibrium partitioning of these species is advanced.
