Amide groups are chemically bonded to the monolithic silica and makes it suitable for the analysis of sugars via HILIC mode.
As the back pressure is significantly low, a 500 mm length MonoCap Amide column deliver over 40,000 plates offering high efficiency.
Generally, HILIC mode uses acetonitrile at a concentration between 65-95 % in an aqueous buffer such as ammonium acetate or
ammonium formate, which have high solubility in organic solvents. Columns are protected by either metal or PEEK hardwares.
