SFC Applications with Versatile and Safe YMC Columns

SFC columns are the heart of every SFC application. The most important requirement is the consideration of all aspects of safety. Therefore, you can buy specifically tested SFC columns in the YMC portfolio, which ensure your lab safety.

Moreover, YMC columns have been tested by an independent institute. The AFIN-TS Institute (Analytisches Forschungsinstitut für Non-Target Screening GmbH) tested the selectivity as well as the separation efficiency in SFC mode of YMC-Triart Diol (1.9 µm, 12 nm).

These independent results confirm:

  • Robustness
  • Versatile application possibilities
  • Fast separations

Several substances with different logD values were tested to verify the column selectivity of YMC-Triart Diol. The goal was to achieve the best separation in the shortest time. All substances could be separated and detected, which proves the versatility of YMC-Triart Diol.

The results also show very consistent behaviour for all compounds at each backpressure. Furthermore, a very wide flow rate range can be used without significant effects on the efficiency, which accurately corresponds to the behaviour in LC mode.
