YMC-Pack ODS-AL uses not only hydrophobic interaction, but also secondary interactions caused by silanol groups that affect separation. This results in a different selectivity from conventional ODS columns. When ionic interaction is utilized, it is preferable to use a buffer in the mobile phase to achieve the best reproducibility.
Guard columns are recommended for challenging matrices or for use as trapping columns. YMC capillary guard columns are connected directly to the analytical column using the supplied column coupler.
A column coupler is supplied with every pack of YMC capillary guard cartridges to guarantee an optimum connection with low dead volume. A polymer-based (PCTFE) coupler is provided for 1/16” columns, while a stainless steel coupler is provided for 1/32” columns. Additional couplers can be purchased separately if required.
