  • Purpose

    Use Silica 60A as an adsorptive polar stationary phase or as an additive to your depth filtration processes. It’s perfect for use in normal phase column chromatography, batch extraction decolorizations, and rapid adsorption of small molecular impurities. Step up production speed with Silica 60A and improve liquid flow rates through clay media filter beds.

  • Composition

    Silica 60A is a powdered silica xerogel (silicon dioxide) that’s been optimized for column chromatography with or without elevated pressure. Its particle size, surface area, pH ≈ 7.2, and purity are designed for improved flow and maximum adsorption. This fine spherical particulate measures 37-63 microns (µm) and has a nominal pore size of 60 angstroms (Å).

  • Particle Size & pH

    Silica 60A has a particle size of 37mm to 63mm and a neutral pH of 7.2.
