In our lab, we have done some work on N-oxide drug metabolites. I believe,
with respect to polarity, N-oxides and S-oxides are quite similar (V.V.
polar). As you
also noticed, with these compounds reverse phase extraction (and may be
even reverse phase HPLC due to lack of sufficient retention) may not be
very successful. With our compound, an amino phase operated in
"pseudo normal phase" mode (starting with acetonitrile and gradually
increasing water) provided excellent retention on the HPLC column. You may
want to try this phase for solid phase sample extraction. Good luck and
please do let me know if it works.
