Kinetex Polar C18 core shell columns deliver high retention

Kinetex Polar C18 is an ideal all-purpose phase for use with mixtures of multiple polar and nonpolar compounds or single-class methods with closely related compounds. A key application that can greatly benefit from this dual selectivity includes pesticide screening in food.

Kinetex Kinetex Polar C18 Phenomenex testing

Phenomenex Inc., a major player in the research and manufacture of advanced technologies for the separation sciences, introduces the Kinetex 2.6 µm Polar C18 – the ninth selectivity in the Kinetex core-shell family. This stationary phase combines C18 ligands with a polar-modified surface to enable superior retention of polar and nonpolar compounds while ensuring 100 percent aqueous stability.

Incorporating the key performance benefits of the Kinetex Core-Shell Technology, the 2.6 µm Polar C18 particle size provides high efficiency and performance on HPLC systems and potential increases in resolution, sensitivity and separation speed. On UHPLC systems, the 2.6 µm size provides comparable performance to fully porous sub-2 µm particles, but at much lower backpressure levels.
