Bare Silica Glass-backed Preparative TLC Plates

> back to SiliaPlate Glass-backed Preparative TLC Plates

Preparative TLC plates are used for analytical separations of larger quantities of materials, thanks to their thicker adsorbent layer.
Various adsorbents can be used for TLC coating; silica, aluminum oxide, florisil, etc. However, silica gel is probably the most versatile since it covers almost all types of separation (if the right solvent system is selected). More than 80 % of all purifications are performed using silica gel as the adsorbent.
