Inertsil WP300 SIL is pure silica gel phase with wide pores (300 Å). It is available for analysing compounds including large molecules. As the pore becomes wider, the surface area of silica gel is smaller. Since the interactions between the analyte and silica gel occur on the sIlica surface, smaller surface area means less interactions and faster elution. In the fi gure below, Inertsil WP300 SIL and Inertsil SIL-100A are compared to see their separation and eluting speed. The pore size of Inertsil SIL-100A is 100 Å and the surface area is 450 m²/g. As shown, Inertsil WP300 SIL elutes faster than Inertsil SIL-100A though their separating patterns are similar.
