Classical Silica Preparative Layer Plates

Maximum Separation Efficiency with Minimum Background Noise

Classical silica PLC platesMerck’s classical silica PLC plates can be used for a vast variety of TLC separations when combined with a suitable mobile phase. Based on our proven silica-binder technology, the plates have a highly adherent and hard surface. They can even be written on with a pencil, without damaging the layer. The smooth and extremely dense surface of the plates ensures narrow bands for maximum separation efficiency and lowest background noise. This is of particular importance for applications such as scanning densitometry. Our classical silica PLC plates are available in several thicknesses, ranging from 0.5 mm to 2 mm, and offered with or without a fluorescent indicator.
