SMT OD-IQ is unique reversed phase packing material designed to have both hydrophobic and truly hydrophilic spacer ligands. The mixed-phase consists of a meticulously controlled mixture of hydrophobic, C18 molecules, and proprietary hydrophilic molecules, chemically attached on the silica substrate, using “total coverage” technology. The result is a stationary phase that has all of the following characteristics:
Stronger retention of polar molecules in aqueous eluent.
Reduced backpressure; the hydrophilic hybrid enhances the solvation of the bonded phase in an aqueous environment.
Different selectivity compared to conventional C18.
Eliminates the need for ion pairing reagents
The column offers enhanced separation for proteins, peptides, nucleotides and other biomolecules. The column is also recommended for the analyses of highly polar organic compounds.
