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.
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.
Columns, Guards and Accessories are only available for purchase online in North America or through our distributors.
To purchase consumables outside North America, please find your local distributor.
