SiliCycle offers silica-based products that can be used in organic synthesis in replacement of homogeneous equivalents. In many cases, supported reagents have distinct advantages over their solution-phase counterparts, the biggest one being the ability to do multiple transformations in a single pot, the immobilization of toxic reagents, and increased selectivity. They are also suitable for use in batch reactions and in flow through applications.
All available applications developed for synthesis purposes are listed below:
- Common Organic Reactions

Chromatography with silver nitrate is a well known and established methodology for the separation of non polar compounds with similar polarities. Generally, with a mixture of unsaturated compounds such as alkenes, lipids, steroids, terpenes, etc, standard separation procedures lack in efficiency. However, by using SiliaBond® Silver Nitrate for your column chromatography along with SiliaPlate™ Ag for your TLC, you will have the necessary tools to circumvent the problem.
Analytical SiliaPlate™ made with silver nitrate impregnated silica gel are available on glass backing.
