Can you tell us how are the two molecules different, structurally?  It's a good way to learn, figuring out things like this, for yourself.
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.

For example, a quick Google search leads me to a number of HPLC applications for these two molecules:

The usefullness depends on what you needs are, and what resources you have available.
