General description

Application: Modified (deactivated) version of SLB-IL59 provides better inertness. Selectivity more polar than PEG/wax phases, resulting in unique elution patterns. Higher maximum temperature than PEG/wax columns (300 ºC compared to 270-280 ºC). Excellent alternative to existing PEG/wax columns. Also a good GCxGC column choice. Launched in 2012.
USP Code: None

GC Analysis of Xylene Isomers on SLB®-IL60 - The cresol (methylphenol) isomers are also precursors to many chemicals. This chromatogram of a mix of aromatic and methylphenol compounds was generated using an SLB-IL60 ionic liquid column. Its interaction mechanisms allow the separation of all three xylene isomers, and all three cresol isomers.

ionic liquids can successfully be used as viable GC stationary phases. These consist of two or more organic cations joined by a linkage, and associated with... improved inertness for polar analytes was the inspiration for the development of SLB™-IL (i-series) ionic liquid capillary GC columns. They solve a dilemma.
