The basis of retention in Reversed Phase Chromatography is just the opposite of that seen in normal phase (e.g., silica gel) chromatography.In normal phase chromatography the adsorbent is a polar material. Adsorption occurs as a result of polar interactions. Thus, in normal phase chromatography, more polar sample components will be more tightly adsorbed and will exhibit lower Rf values than less polar sample components. Rf values can be increased by making the mobile phase more polar.In Reversed Phase Chromatography the adsorbent is a relatively nonpolar material. Adsorption occurs as a result of nonpolar interactions, Thus, in Reversed Phase Chromatography less polar sample components will be more tightly adsorbed and will exhibit lower Rf values than more polar sample components. In Reversed Phase Chromatography Rf values can generally be increased by making the mobile phase less polar.


Analtech Reversed Phase Separation (RPS) UNIPLATES are a hydrocarbon impregnated silica gel. The hydrocarbon is adsorbed onto the silica gel surface and is not chemically anchored to the particle. The impregnated RPS UNIPLATE offers several advantages over the bonded RP18 type TLC plates along with some limitations.The main advantages of the hydrocarbon impregnated Reversed Phase plate are compatibility with aqueous solutions and parallel behavior to most C18 HPTLC packings. The RPS UNIPLATE will accept 100% water either as the mobile phase or spotting solvent. This is a great advantage when working with polar sample components such as proteins and peptides.·Less expensive than bonded phae TLC plates·Aqeuous compatibility for polar samples·Inorganic binder·Rapid, inexpensive methods development for HPTLC·Expanded flexibility to a wide range of applicationsThe RPS impregnated UNIPLATE approximates the adsorption characteristics of the bonded C18 modified silica gels. Therefore, RPS Reversed Phase UNIPLATES are an excellent medium for rapid, inexpensive screening of chromatographic conditions in HPTLC method development.


Mixtures of water or buffers plus a polar organic modifier (eg., Methanol, acetonitrile, THF, etc.) are easily scouted with RPS UNIPLATES. However, since the hydrocarbon is adsorbed but not chemically anchored to the silica gel, the RPS UNIPLATES cannot tolerate nonpolar organic solvents. Ethyl Acetate or less polar organic solvents will strip the hydrocarbon from the silica get support. (For organic solvent compatible plates see the UNIBOND series of HPTLC plates.)
