Description

General description

Application: The 5% phenyl equivalent phase provides a boiling point elution order with a slight increase in selectivity, especially for aromatic compounds. The low bleed characteristics, inertness, and durable nature make it the column of choice for environmental analytes (such as semivolatiles, pesticides, PCBs, and herbicides) or anywhere a low bleed non-polar column is required.
USP Code: This column meets USP G27 and G36 requirements.
Phase:
• Bonded and highly crosslinked
• Silphenylene polymer virtually equivalent in polarity to poly(5% diphenyl/95% dimethyl siloxane)
Temp. Limits:
• ≤0.32 mm I.D.: -60 °C to 340 °C (isothermal) or 360 °C (programmed)
• ≥0.53 mm I.D.: -60 °C to 330 °C (isothermal) or 340 °C (programmed)

Frequently Asked Questions

Which document(s) contains shelf-life or expiration date information for a given product?
If available for a given product, the recommended re-test date or the expiration date can be found on the Certificate of Analysis.
How do I get lot-specific information or a Certificate of Analysis?
The lot specific COA document can be found by entering the lot number above under the "Documents" section.
How does the SLB-5ms Capillary GC Columndiffer from our other 5-type columns?
Many of our other 5-type columns (Equity-5, SPB-5, PTE-5, MDN-5, and MDN-5S) incorporate a siloxane polymer (backbone comprised of Si and O atoms only, side groups are either methyl or phenyl). The SLB-5ms column incorporates a silphenylene polymer (backbone comprised of Si and O atoms plus some phenyl groups, side groups are either methyl or phenyl).
What are the benefits of the SLB-5ms Capillary GC Column over other manufacturers -5ms columns?
The SLB-5ms excels in several performance criteria. Low Bleed. The highly crosslinked silphenylene polymer chemistry reduces column bleed to a very low level, resulting in greater signal-to-noise level, allowing lower detection levels. Inertness. The proprietary surface deactivation reduces interactions between analytes and the column surface, resulting in sharper peak shapes, allowing lower detection levels. Durability. With the highest published maximum allowable operating temperature (MAOT) of any -5ms column, SLB-5ms columns are designed for long life. Consistency. Innovative manufacturing processes result in decreased column variability, ensuring that the next column is as good as the last.
Would you recommend SLB-5ms Capillary GC Columns for all applications instead of Equity-5, SPB-5, PTE-5, MDN-5, and MDN-5S?
Yes.
Who uses SLB-5ms Capillary GC Columns?
Any analyst with the need for a non-polar column. Some applications include boiling point separations, GC-MS analyses of semivolatiles, and GC-ECD analyses of pesticides/PCBs. It is estimated that non-polar columns account for 51% of the worldwide column market.
What if my method does not allow me to change to SLB-5ms Capillary GC Columns?
These methods typically specify a 5-type column (DB-5 or equivalent). The SLB-5ms satisfies that requirement.
Where can I get additional information about SLB-5ms Capillary GC Columns?
The best place to find up-to-date information is the SLB web landing page at www.sigma-aldrich.com/slb.
