Maximum Application Range
YMC-Pack Polymer C18 is prepared from a hydrophilic methacrylate polymer bonded with a hydrophobic octadecylsilane (ODS) reagent. Because of this, Polymer C18 is compatible with all standard-based ODS reversed-phased solvents, and has a much broader pH range than silica-based ODS. Compounds such as organic acids, organic amines, peptides, pharmaceuticals, and proteins can be analyzed using Polymer C18.
Like standard silica-based ODS, Polymer C18 has a hydrophobic bonding (ODS) on a hydrophilic support. Consequently, its selectivity is more similar to that of silica-based C18 than styrene/DVB-based supports.
Polymer C18 is a pure organic stationary phase and is not based on a silica gel support. As such, it has no residual silanols or metal impurities to interfere with the analysis of basic organic compounds.
