Diol Columns

SMT Diol column is developed as an alternative for silica column used in normal phase separation methods. The Diol [-OH] functional group is controlled, and as such, provides more reproducible separation when compared to separation on silanols [-OH] from bare silica surface. Furthermore, the hydrogen bonding on the OH functional group on Diol packing material is not as strong as that of bare silica. This results in a reduced interaction of polar compounds on the column. SMT-Diol can be used in normal and reversed-phase separation of pesticides, herbicides, pharmaceutical metabolites, polar natural products, proteins, peptides and other polar biomolecules.

Unique features:

  • High loading capability and improved sample recovery
  • High reproducibility of bonded ligand resulting in consistent separation
  • Increased longevity provided through “Total Coverage”

Two types of SMT Diol are available:

  • Diol1: Consists of acid-catalyzed cleavage of 3-(2,3-epoxypropoxy) propyl as the functional ligand
  • Diol2: Consists of acid-catalyzed cleavage of 5,6-epoxyhexyl as the functional ligand

Just like the silica substrate, both of Diol1 and Diol2 can be subjected to further treatment or modification with another functional ligand for special applications.
