Product News: New Kinetex® Core-Shell Phenyl-Hexyl Phase HPLC/UHPLC Column Line

28 Sep 2011

Phenomenex Inc. has announced the addition of a Phenyl-Hexyl phase to its Kinetex core-shell HPLC/UHPLC column family. Kinetex Phenyl-Hexyl offers selectivity for the separation of compounds that are difficult to resolve using traditional phenyl phases. The new Phenyl-Hexyl columns complement the existing Kinetex phases and are especially effective for resolving aromatic hydrocarbons such as tricyclic antidepressants and explosives. Like C18, Phenyl-Hexyl is ideal for a wide range of applications, including the resolution of moderate hydrophobic compounds.

The Kinetex Phenyl-Hexyl is offered in 2.6- and 1.7-micron particle sizes. “The addition of a Phenyl-Hexyl phase to the Kinetex core-shell line of HPLC/UHPLC columns gives chromatographers one of the most useful selectivities on one of the most advanced LC technologies,” explains Jeremy Bierman, brand manager for Phenomenex.

With complementary C18 and Phenyl phases, users can screen for optimal resolution of complex sample mixtures. Bierman adds, “With the addition of this unique selectivity to our successful portfolio of reversed phase chemistries on core-shell HPLC and UHPLC media, we now address the vast majority of separation needs in the industry.”
