RP-Modified Silica Preparative Layer Plates

RP-modified silica PLC platesMerck’s RP-modified silica PLC plates are suitable for many separation challenges that classical silica cannot overcome. They enable the analysis of extremely non-polar substances and particular polar substances. Furthermore, they are less dependent on atmospheric humidity, and exhibit less catalytic activity.

Maximum Robustness and Efficiency

As with our classical silica plates, RP-modified silica layers are based on our proven silica-binder technology. Hence, they have a very adherent and hard surface that will not crack or blister, and can even be written on with a pencil with no risk of damage. The smooth and extremely dense surface of the plates ensures narrow bands for maximum separation efficiency with lowest background noise.
