HPLC Column
User's Manual  
SCX is a polymer-coated strong cation exchange column that solves the problems encountered with conventional silica-type ion exchange columns. Precisely classified 5-µm high-purity silica is coated with a thin film of silicone polymer, and then, followed by the introduction of sulfonic groups.
· Since high-purity silica is used, coordinating compounds are not adsorbed.
Irreversible adsorption by complex formation is not recognized because of small metal impurities in the packing material.

· Good durability
Si-C bonds used in the polymer film is more stable than Si-O-Si bonds of conventional silica-based SCX columns.
Fig 2
· Good lot-to-lot reproducibility
An excellent reproducibility was obtained by performing sulfonic group modification on the polymer surface, instead of doing it directly on silica as conventional SCXs did.
