Description

General description

Prepsolv solvents are tailored to the requirements of preparative HPLC to facilitate scale-up from analytical to preparative separations. With their extremely low evaporation residue (< 1 mg/l) and low water content, they ensure optimal protection for columns.

Analysis Note

Purity (GC): ≥ 99.8 %
Identity (IR): conforms
Evaporation residue: ≤ 1.0 mg/l
Water: ≤ 0.05 %
Acidity: ≤ 0.0005 meq/g
Alkalinity: ≤ 0.0002 meq/g
Transmission (at 220 nm): ≥ 90 %
Transmission (from 240 nm): ≥ 98 %
Filtered by 0.2 µm filter
