Lower hydrophobicity than C18 recommended for analytes with moderate hydrophobicity:
Similar selectivity to C18 with lower retention
Rugged and reproducible solid core particles
Fast separations with superb resolution
Accucore™ C8 HPLC columns offer lower hydrophobic retention than columns packed with longer alkyl chain length material, such as C18, and are therefore recommended for analytes with moderate hydrophobicity or when a less hydrophobic phase provides optimum retention.
The low levels of secondary interactions demonstrated in the phase characterization are the result of excellent bonded phase coverage and allow users of Accucore C8 HPLC columns to benefit from excellent peak shapes.
In common with all Accucore HPLC columns, Accucore C8 provides fast separations with superb resolution and generates only 50% of the backpressure associated with columns packed with sub-2 µm materials.
