ACE® Excel Phenyl 3 micron and 5 micron UHPLC compatible columns use a proprietary bonding and end-capping process to produce a very rugged and robust phenylethyl phase
ACE® Excel Phenyl has a hydrophobicity that is between C4 and C8 phases, with increased polar selectivity. ACE® Excel Phenyl has improved performance, stability and reproducibility compared to conventional phenyl phases. ACE® Excel Phenyl is compatible with highly aqueous mobile phases.
ACE® Excel Phenyl is available in 2, 3 and 5 micron particles sizes. ACE® Excel Phenyl has a surface area of 300 m2/g and a carbon load of 9.5%. ACE® Excel Phenyl has a recommended pH range of 2-8 (working outside these ranges will reduce column lifetime).
ACE® Excel UHPLC columns are extremely robust even when operated at high pressures and temperatures. ACE® Excel 3 micron and 5 micron columns are packed at extreme pressures in specialized hardware. They can be operated at pressures as high as 1,000 bar. A specially engineered 2 micron inlet frit makes them less prone to plugging than conventional UHPLC columns. ACE® Excel columns are compatible with all HPLC, UPLC and UHPLC instruments.
Ordering information: If a guard column is required for ACE® Excel 3 micron and 5 micron UHPLC compatible columns, manufacturer recommends stand-alone guard holder, and the corresponding, appropriately sized ACE® guard cartridge.
