In this study, some practical examples are presented that show the quality of separations using very efficient columns packed with the latest generation of core shell sub-3 lm and fully porous sub-2 lm particles in onedimensional peptide separations. This paper shows an approach for the analysis of proteins, such as high-resolution separations, and a data transformation process to improve peak recognition and analysis. Applying power functions on raw chromatographic data can be a neat tool in the field of biosimilar analysis, especially in comparability studies regarding the quality (primary structure) of proteins. Based on the results presented here, it can be stated that the use of power functions is beneficial for the comparison of chromatograms when peak areas are considered but has no effect when using peak heights. In this study, the new Acquity CSH columns (C18 and phenyl-hexyl) and the core-shell type wide pore Ascentis Express Peptide ES C18 material were applied with great success in peptide mapping. Finally, using phenyl-hexyl stationary phase in peptide separation seems to be a good alternative to the generally applied C18 or C4 phases.
