The separation of fluorous compounds from non-fluorous compounds using FluoroFlash® silica gel is the central theme of fluorous techniques.  Under the appropriate conditions the FluoroFlash® stationary phase retains the fluorous compounds with exceptional efficiency and selectivity.  A simple switch of the mobile phase then effects release of the fluorous compounds from the stationary phase.  FluoroFlash® silica gel is characterized by its high loading capacity, outstanding selectivity, and easy recyclability (1-2).


FluoroFlash® silica gel is available in a vareity of formats from analytical to preparative and from pre-packaged to loose bulk.  FTI can also custom format FluoroFlash® silica to meet your purification needs.  Just click on the 'Contact Us' button above and let us know the format that you need!

Fluorous silica gel


Bulk FluoroFlash® silica gel is available in two particle sizes, 40 micron and 5 micron.  The 40 micron gel is suitable for use in SPE cartridges and multi-well SPE plates (1).  The 5 micron gel is recommended for proteomics and bioreagent applications where nanocapillary columns are required (2).
