General description

Florisil, adsorbent for the separation of lipids, is a commercially-prepared magnesia silica gel. It has a coarse mesh size which helps in rapid flow rate. Florisil is effective in promoting [1,3]-sigmatropic shift of myceophenolic acid related allyl phenyl ethers. Florisil cartridges are used in atmospheric sampling to assess possible interference from air contaminants.


Florisil was used:
  • as column packing material in column chromatography
  • as an adsorbent in gas chromatography with electron capture detector (GC/ECD), capillary column chromatography, adsorption column chromatography
  • in clean-up procedures in gas chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry and GC-FID


may contain some dark particles
