Reversed-phase Aluminum-backed Analytical TLC Plates

> back to SiliaPlate Aluminum-backed Analytical TLC Plates

Functionalized silica gels can also be used as TLC adsorbents for particular needs when satisfactory separations cannot be achieved by unmodified silica. Reversed-phases TLC plates include C2, C8 and C18 phases where functionalization of silica is performed using organosilanes of various chain lengths. Retention of molecules and the ability to tolerate water in the moving phase are directly dependent on the chain length: the shorter the chain, the more water tolerant it is and hence the shorter the migration time will be.

Please note that for functionalized TLC plates, all purchases are final, non-refundable and non-exchangeable.
