The culmination of 20+ years in LC, Force performance LC columns are long-lasting and reproducible, even under the stress of UHPLC. Premium quality is backed by the strength of our 100% Pure Satisfaction guarantee. And perhaps most important, Force columns are fully scalable between 3 or 5 µm HPLC and 1.8 µm UHPLC, so you can easily transfer and optimize methods without extensive calculations. Apply Force LC columns to all of your HPLC and UHPLC instrument platforms at www.restek.com/force
The general-purpose Restek C18 is a conventional monomeric octadecylsilane column suitable for analyses of a wide range of compounds from acidic through slightly basic.

Stationary Phase Category: C18, octadecylsilane (L1)
Ligand Type: End-capped C18
Particle: 1.8 µm, 3 μm, or 5 μm fully porous silica
Pore Size: 100 Å
Carbon Load: 20%
End-Cap: yes
Surface Area: 300 m2/g
Recommended Usage:
pH Range: 2.0–8.0
Maximum Temperature: 80 °C
Maximum Pressure: 1,034 bar/15,000 psi* (1.8 μm), 600 bar/8,700 psi (3 μm); 400 bar/5,800 psi (5 μm)

* For maximum lifetime, recommended maximum pressure for 1.8 μm particles is 830 bar/12,000 psi.

Properties:

  • Compatible with moderately acidic to neutral mobile phases (pH 2–8).
  • Excellent data quality in food, environmental, bioanalytical, and other applications.

Switch to a C18 when:

  • You need a general-purpose column for reversed-phase chromatography.
  • You need to increase retention of hydrophobic compounds.
