Phenyl columns provide unique selectivity when compared to aliphatic straight chain reversed-phase materials such as C18, C8, and C4. The π electrons of the phenyl group can interact with the aromatic ring(s) of an analyte to increase retention relative to non-aromatic species. Phenyl also has application as an alternative to C18 and C4 for the analysis of peptides and proteins on both small-pore (120Å) and wide-pore (300Å) silica supports. Retention is decreased on wide-pore phenyl phases relative to 120Å material. Generally, as pore size increases, surface area decreases, resulting in shorter retention times.
YMC’s Guard Column Cartridge Systems for HPLC accept cartridges of 1.0, 2.1, 3.0, or 4.0mm inner diameters – in either 10mm or 20mm lengths. Cartridges are available with a comprehensive selection including all stationary phase chemistries offered by YMC, ensuring compatibility between the guard column and the analytical column. Assembly is tool-free, simplifying cartridge replacement.
YMC Guard Column Cartridges require the use of a holder, P/N: XPGCHP1 for 10mm length and P/N: XPGCHP2 for 20mm length.

YMC’s Guard Columns for HPLC are available in 4.0mm and 5.0mm diameters with 10mm lengths and 8.0mm diameters with 30mm lengths. These guard columns are available with a comprehensive stationary phase selection offered by YMC, ensuring compatibility between the guard column and the analytical column. Unlike our guard cartridge columns, these guard columns do not require a holder, but do require a small jumper made from either stainless steel or PEEK tubing in order to connect them to the inlet of the analytical column.
No Holder Required
Columns, Guards and Accessories are only available for purchase online in North America or through our distributors.
