Generally, silica based columns are mechanically stable and provide high efficiencies, however, they cannot be used under alkaline conditions and their residual silanol groups tend to adsorb organic bases. InertSustain C18 employs a radically new type of silica, in which the surface of the silica is uniquely modified, enabling precise control of the silica properties.
InertSustain C18 inherits the advantages of all the current Inertsil HPLC columns (e.g., extremely low operating back pressure, superior inertness to typically any analytes, high efficiency and compatibility with a wide range of solvents), but now can be used for wide pH analysis with consistent performance from column to column and lot to lot.
• High Inertness
• Extremely Low Operating Back Pressure
• Long Column Lifetime
• pH Range from 1 ～ 10
• Reliable Reproducibility
InertSustain AQ-C18 columns are designed to achieve strong retention for highly polar compounds, which is the most challenging goals in developing reversed phase methods. The optimization of bonding of the C18 groups at equal distance to the silica gel enable InertSustain AQ-C18 to offer significant retention for highly polar compounds even under water rich mobile phases.
• Exceptional retention for highly polar compounds (hydrophilic)
• Highly inert packing material results in less tailing of peaks for virtually any type of analytes
• Extreme resistance to low and high pH mobile phases
• Reliable Reproducibility, performance & quality
• Endlessly reproducible from column-to-column and batch-to-batch
InertSustain Amide column is a HILIC (Hydrophilic Interaction Chromatography) column for enhanced retention of extremely polar compounds. It offers the strongest retentivity among the Amide columns available in the market due to the usage and bonding of carbamoyl groups. Superior stability and durability even under water rich mobile phases.
InertSustain Phenyl delivers an extremely unique reverse phase characteristics that are critical to resolving compounds that could not be separated on a C18 or C8 phase. InertSustain Phenyl provides not only pi-pi interactions, but also hydrogen bonding secondary interactions, which results in retaining polar compounds at the same time. As the phenyl groups are directly bonded to the silica gel, InertSustain Phenyl is compatible with the analysis of structural isomers due to it’s high stereo-selectivity while other alkyl phenyl type columns fails to separate.
InertSustain Phenylhexyl columns are bonded with phenylhexyl groups, which employs a phenyl ring with a hexyl (6- carbon) linker and is densely bonded to our newly developed ES silica gel delivering complementary selectivity to straight alkyl-chain columns, but with industry leading inertness, lot-to-lot reproducibility and low back pressure.
InertSustain NH2 shows far superior stability compared to other brand available aminopropyl columns, as our newly developed “Evolved Surface Silica” is chemically bonded with aminopropyl group. Generally, aminopropyl columns are used for applications that are hard to be separated in a reversed phase mode, such as simultaneous analysis of sugars or vitamin E. However, the shift in retention time has been an issue for a long time. InertSustain NH2 delivers highly reliable reproducibility and stability with accurate qualitative and quantitative results. Further more, aminopropyl columns generally can not be washed by weakly acidic eluent, however InertSustain NH2 was improved and it can be washed by weakly acidic eluent.
InertSustain C8 is an octyl group (C8) bonded column delivering the same extreme inertness to any type of compounds just like InertSustain C18, which enables rapid analysis of highly hydrophobic compounds delivering symmetric peaks at a wide range of pH.
InertSustain PFP columns are bonded with Pentafluorophenyl groups to our newly developed ES silica gel, which delivers unique separation patterns with excellent peak shape and sensitivity. The chromatographic difference stems from the fact that the PFP phases provide interactions such as π-π, dipole, hydrogen bonding, and ionic interactions unlike conventional PFP columns.
In general, the stability and reproducibility of the Cyano phase available in the market are poor. Many batch-to-batch or lot-to-lot reproducibility issues are occurring at many laboratories. The InertSustain Cyano columns were developed to resolve these problems and are designed using the most modern LC column technology available providing them to be extremely inert, stable and reproducible. The InertSustain Cyano columns are highly recommended for all pharmacopeia methods requiring a Cyano phase to be used. (Ex: USP L10)
InertSustain AX-C18 is a mix-mode column bonded with C18 groups and tertiary amino groups. It provides hydrophobic interaction and electrostatic interaction by AX group works. By controlling the amount of AX group, acidic compounds can be eluted even in the buffer concentration range used with LC/MS.
• Retention behavior that combines both reversed-phase and anion exchange
• Excellent retention for acidic compounds
• Excellent reproducibility and stable quality
