General description

Petrocol® DH is very versatile comprising of a series of nonpolar methyl silicone capillary columns. They were designed basically for the analysis of complex hydrocarbon mixtures. The choice of column is based upon the type of analysis and resolution required.
Application: This highly reproducible column has considerable theoretical plate numbers and is designed for detailed analyses of petroleum products for PIANO, PONA, and PNA-type analytes. Includes an extensive retention index data sheet of 400+ analytes.
USP Code: This column meets USP G1, G2, and G9 requirements.
  • Bonded
  • Poly(dimethyl siloxane)
Temp. Limits:
  • -60 °C to 320 °C (isothermal or programmed)


Petrocol® DH Capillary GC Column may be used in 4-Methylpentan-2-ol dehydration, by thermal and mechanochemical regimes, using ball milling technique and GC-MS.
