Request Information

Suitable for Normal or Reversed-Phase Separations of Complex Samples

Merck:/Freestyle/LE-Lab-Essentials/Chromatography/LE-Chrom-LiChrospher® HPLC columns-150x245-02212014.pngLiChrospher® 100 DIOL exhibits both polar and hydrophobic properties, and combines weak hydrophobic interactions with polar interactions. This enables successful HPLC separations of complex samples. The sorbent can be used as a less polar alternative to LiChrospher® Si 60 in normal-phase applications, or as a less hydrophobic alternative (with some limitations) to LiChrospher® RP-8 in reversed-phase applications. Furthermore, LiChrospher® DIOL is also suitable for exclusion chromatography.

Features and Benefits

  • Combines weak hydrophobic interactions with polar interactions
  • Enables successful HPLC of complex samples
  • Also suitable for exclusion chromatography
