A Particle Size for Each Application

Most Popular Particle Size Applications

Particle Size Distribution Application
Particles for Preparative TLC Plates
From 0 to 20 μm
  • Contain neither binder (organic or inorganic) nor UV indicator (F254)
  • Can also be used in flash chromatography if higher resolution is required (higher back-pressure)
Particles for Difficult Separations
From 10 to 45 μm
  • high-resolution silica for difficult separations (similar polarities)
Particles for Flash Chromatography
40 - 63 µm
  • Chromatography types: high-resolution flash chromatography & low to medium-pressure preparative chromatography
  • Narrow particle size distribution
  • Easier to pack and more uniform packing
  • Superior resolution
  • Suitable for use with complex matrices
60 - 120 µm
  • Alternative to 40-63 µm silica gel for faster flow rate with lower pressure
Particles for column (or Gravity) Chromatography
From 60 - 200 µm
  • Most economical silica for open column chromatography (gravity)
  • Suitable for very dirty purification
  • Easier to handle
120 - 200 µm
  • Silica for standard open column chromatography
  • Narrow particle size distribution enables uniform packing
  • Suitable for mass overload purification
Other Application
From 200 to 1,000 µm
  • Silica for plugs
