Why do reversed phase HPLC columns have an endcapping?

With an endcapping the influence of non derivatized silanol groups can be minimized. The endcapping reagent is generally a smaller silane than used for derivatisation. This treatment reduces the unwanted interaction of polar or charged analytes (acids, bases ect.) because the amount of available silanol groups is reduced.
