These columns use a hybrid connection TWIN technology known from Gemini-NX column and core-shell particles. The organic bond in this way protects the surface modified silica particles Kinetex EVO before disbanding in strongly alkaline environment. This also makes the surface highly inert particles EVO.
Benefits of Kinetex EVO columns:
- Development of robust methods with a wide range of pH 1 – 12
- Improved peak shape for basic compounds
- Reduced analysis time and increased sensitivity
- Stable in 100% aqueous phases
During the manufacturing process, the silica surface is also coated with a weak positive charge. This further reduces the interaction with the positively charged analytes (ie bases). Kinetex EVO C18 is another addition to the very successful series of HPLC/UHPLC core-shell columns Kinetex.
