Properties of Common Cross-Linked Silicone Stationary Phases



Thomas J. Bruno, Paris D. Svoronos


Modern gas chromatography is most often performed with high efficiency capillary (open tubular) columns coated with a cross linked polymeric stationary phase. We provide chromatographic data on the two most common cross-linked phases [1]. The retention indices presented in these tables were measured at 120 oC isothermally. Retention indices are temperature dependent, the temperature dependence of the Kovats indices have been studied for many compounds. [2] For more extensive information on other corss linked phases, other silicone phases, mesogenic phases, and solid sorbents, the reader is advised to consult reference 1.
