The chromatographic behavior of some artificial and natural sweeteners was established by reverse phase
high performance thin-layer chromatography (RP-HPTLC) on RP-18, RP-18W, RP-8, CN and NH2 stationary
phases. The mobile phases were mixtures of acetonitrile–water in different proportions of volume,
chosen to create a suitable migration during the chromatographic process. The lipophilicity was described
through different chromatographic descriptors such as RM0, mean of RM (mRM), and scores of RM values
corresponding to the first principal component (PC1/RM). In addition, scores and loadings resulting from
covariance matrix of retention data enable new information about similarity and differences of investigated
compounds and between both the stationary and mobile phases. The experimental lipophilicity
indices estimated from retention data are directly correlated with the computed values, via computer
software and internet module, at a high significant statistical level.
