Which influence has the column temperature?

When the temperature increases the viscosity of the mobile phase decreases. This should enhance the transport of solute mass and lead to better chromatographic efficiency. But the temperature also detracts the retention factor and selectivity. That can result in an improval of resolution or not. It has to be verified for every individual case.

We separate molecules and unite people.

Based in Berlin, KNAUER has been serving the sciences since 1962. We develop and manufacture scientific instruments of superior quality for liquid chromatography systems and components, including:

Analytical HPLC / UHPLC
Preparative HPLC
Fast protein liquid chromatography (FPLC)
Multi-Column Chromatography / SMB

We are an established partner in science. Today and in the future.​​​​​​
