Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) are among the most frequently monitored environmental contaminants. YMC PAH columns have been specifically developed for the highly demanding analysis of these compounds. Standard and official methods for the analysis of PAHs are found in compendia for air, drinking water, wasted water, solid waste, and food analysis. Many of these methods specify HPLC, usually with UV or fluorescence detection, as the recommended analytical procedure.
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.
