General description

LiChrosolv® solvents show high degree of UV transmittance, low particle count, low acidity and alkalinity and low evaporation residue level. This makes them suitable for reproducible separations.
Acetonitrile is a polar aprotic solvent, which is used as an intermediate in organic synthesis. It has a low viscosity, high elution strength and miscibility in water that make it viable in many chromatography systems. It can also be utilized in spectrophotometric and fluorimetric technques.

Application

Intended for U/HPLC and LC-MS/MS applications.

Featured as a solvent in screening of benzofurans and ethylphenidate psychostimulants in serum, urine, and hair samples by UHPLC-MS/MS.
The product is an organic solvent, used as a mobile phase/extraction solvent in the ultra-high performance liquid chromatorgraphy - tandem mass spectrometry (UHPLC-MS/MS) analysis of pesticides in tobacco samples.

Other Notes

Explore various lab safety accessories and equipment for safe handling of solvents to increase your safety level from the first usage.
