TLC Plates / Silica Gels
Silica gel is the most widely used adsorbent. As products using silica gel, thin layer chromatography (TLC) plates, silica gels for open chromatography, and columns for flash chromatography are available. The composition of the solvent of open chromatography and flash chromatography can be determined by TLC. After determination of the solvent composition, the solvent can efficiently be separated and purified using Wakogel® (irregular silica gel) and Wakosil® (spherical silica gel) which are adsorbents for open chromatography. Better fractionation and purification is achieved in a short time by using flash chromatography columns (our Presep® series) if the preparative purification system by medium pressure is applied..
Our silica gel TLC plates, Wakogel® series, and flash chromatography columns (irregular shape) are made of the same raw material (silica gel).
