What is the recommended organic amount for starting reversed phase gradient separations?

Reversed phase stationary phases are usually quite hydrophobic dependent on the linked chain length. To prevent a ’’phase collapse’’ reversed phase columns with C4, C8 or C18 modification should be operated with at least 5 % organic content in mobile phase.
