Lab Live # 6 | Why Biphenyl is an Interesting Choice as a Primary Liquid Chromatography Stationary Phase

Thursday 10 December 2020 – 11:00am GMT

This presentation in partnership with Restek Thames will examine why people use a C18 phase, as well as the strengths and limitations of the phase. The session will consider a different phase, Biphenyl. Speaker Luke Staff will look at the modes of interactions and how phase selectivity can be played around with. The session will also consider the characteristics of both columns and how they affect separations.

Who would benefit from attending this digital talk:

• Anyone regularly performing liquid chromatography method development.

• Anyone familiar with Liquid Chromatography but who wants to broaden their column base.

• Anyone who wants to learn more about the principles of stationary phase selection.

This session will be led by Luke Staff. Luke has been working with Chromatography, predominantly Liquid Chromatography, for the last 10 years. Since 2016, he has been Restek Thames’ Liquid Chromatography specialist (in the UK and Ireland), working closely with customers to provide technical support, advice in column selection and assist with the development of liquid chromatography separations.
