SMT has built a reputation as a supplier of the highest quality bulk packing material. We offer a wide selection of silica sizes of various pore dimensions, for various chromatographic applications. The Horizontal Polymerized Bonded Phase packing material offers the benefits of maximized silica life, which reduces manufacturing down time, waste disposal, and increased overall efficiency.
Reversed Phase Columns:
The use of high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for the separation and purification of organic compounds including pharmaceuticals, natural products, food additives, organic chemicals and biologicals, has increased dramatically in the past three decades. This increase is undoubtedly associated with the enormous improvement in bonding chemistry.
Normal Phase Columns:
When chromatographic separation is done in a normal phase mode, the surface chemistry of the stationary phase has a polar characteristic. The mobile phase is generally nonpo- lar organic solvent (such as hexane or heptane).
Ion Exchange Columns:
Separation Methods Technologies, Incorporated has developed new series of ion-exchange packing materials with its novel SAM technology. These packings are offered for all stages of separation science from analytical scale levels to process scale purification levels. The packings are generally silica-based and consist of totally porous particles with approximately 1 Meq/g capacity. SMT packing materials allow flexibility of mobile phases.
SMT has a special interest in surface modification and materials engineering. When separation is difficult with conventional bonded phases, SMT assists in method development and special column design for new applications. SMT specialty columns include special columns designed for reversed phase, normal phase, and ion exchange chromatography. These columns are specially designed for companies that are interested in having competitive advantage in separation and surface modification. The following specialty columns are currently available
