Can chiral columns be used in normal phase and reversed phase mode?

Euroshper II Chiral columns are designed to be used either in normal phase mode, in polar organic mode or in reversed phase mode.

It is not recommended to switch between RP and NP mode using one column.

The standard mode for chiral separations is NP. Eurospher II Chiral columns come in NP solvents and are ready to use.

For RP mode, all Eurospher II Chiral columns are available in a special version. Please only use the RP versions for RP mode as the packing process already differs!


Column for NP mode Column for RP mode
Eurospher II Chiral AM Eurospher II Chiral AM-R
Eurospher II Chiral OM Eurospher II Chiral OM-R
Eurospher II Chiral NR Eurospher II Chiral NR-R
