Unmodified Silica TLC Plates

TLC plates manufactured by Merck KGaA, Darmstadt Germany allow reliable, fast and economical analysis of a great range of substances in pharmaceutical, environmental, food and beverage, cosmetics and many more applications. Thanks to a highly standardized production process and an outstanding quality control, our TLC plates offer the highest batch-to-batch reproducibility. This ensures highly reliable results in qualitative as well as in quantitative analysis.

Excellent Separation Efficiency for a Broad Range of Substances

Classical silica TLC plates enable the analysis of a broad range of compounds and cover almost 80% of applications for adsorption and partition thin-layer chromatography. The TLC plates supplied by Merck KGaA Darmstadt, are based on our proven silica gel 60 combined with a unique polymeric binder, resulting in a uniform and hard surface that will not crack or blister. The smooth and extremely dense surface coating ensures narrow chromatographic bands for maximum separation performance. This is of particular importance for applications such as scanning densitometry.

Classical silica TLC plates have a main particle size distribution of 10 to 12 μm and are available with several backings in a wide range of plate dimensions. The plates have a layer thickness of 250 μm for glass, or 200 μm for aluminum or plastic sheets.

For UV detection of colorless substances, our classical silica TLC plates are available with two types of inorganic fluorescent indicators: green fluorescing F254, or blue fluorescing, acid-stable F254s.

Features and benefits

  • Suitable for a broad range of TLC applications
  • Extremely robust surface will not crack or blister
  • Available as glass, aluminum or plastic in various sizes
