Silica Gel Powder
Chromatography is a method used to separate the mixture to obtain the desired compounds as per the required application. In order to purify the individual compound from the mixture containing variety of compounds, a technique known as column chromatography is used. Silica gel and alumina are commonly used for column chromatography. Among them, silica gel in the form of powder is the most common stationary phase for chromatographic separations. Silica gel powder is available in different mesh sizes that can be from 35 to 800.
The silica gel in variety of particle sizes is used as per the application requirement. It offers high flow rates and high ability to adsorb or separate the desired compounds from the mixture. Such type of sensitive products is manufactured with highest quality standards in order to get highly efficient results. Silica gel in powdered form is used in array of grades of column in chromatography techniques. In column chromatography, the mixture is loaded into a column filled with silica gel in powdered form and eluting is performed by passing the mixture of solvents through the column. It results in finding the individual substances which are collected as the adsorbed substances. This way, the desired compound or component is obtained.
Even for the thin layer chromatography, small particles of silica gel plays a great role as an adsorbent to adsorb the different components on its large surface area. This adsorbent has gained a unique place in chemical industry and research & development laboratories where reaction control is performed in different organic and preparative operations.
