In this paper, novel open-tubular electrochromatographic system with core/shell magnetic nanoparticles modified by amino and C18 functional groups as mixed stationary phase by using a series of permanent magnets to immobilize nanoparticles into the capillary were investigated. The new system showed high separation ability and efficiency due to high specific surface area of nanomaterial and mixing separation mechanism. The transport equations of aromatic acids using the open-tubular electrochromatographic column with magnetic nanoparticle coating as stationary phases were derived under isocratic and double stepwise gradient elutions, and the retention characteristics of organic acids separated by the columns were further investigated. The results showed that the electroosmotic flow gradually decreased with the increase of Fe3O4@SiO2-NH2 in the mixed stationary phases, and the direction of electroosmotic flow reversed eventually. The capacity factor was relevant to the ratio of ion-exchange and reversed-phase stationary phases. Furthermore, experiments confirmed that the capacity factor of solute had a good linear relationship with the ratio of mixed stationary phases, and the correlation coefficient was greater than 0.9166 after fitting. Under the double stepwise gradient elution condition, the migration time of solute can be predicted by its elution time under isocratic elution. After the solutes were eluted by phosphate buffer stepwise gradient elution, the relative errors between predicted retention time and actual retention time of solute were less than 8.0%. After they were eluted by organic modifier concentration stepwise gradient elution, the relative errors between two values of solute were less than 10%. After they were eluted by pH value stepwise gradient elution, the relative errors between two values of solute were less than 5.8%. Rhizoma gastrodiae was separated by the constructed system under the optimized chromatographic condition, the main components of gastrodin, vanilla alcohol and citric acid were identified based on retention time of standards, and the relative errors between predicted value and actual value of citric acid was 11%. The open-tubular electrochromatographic system shows great potential in the method development of analysis of complicated samples.
