TLC Plates, Silica Gel - DURASIL Silica Gel Hard Surface, Unmodified on Glass Substrate, Superb Quality by German Manufacturer Macherey-Nagel


The Macherey-Nagel DURASIL-25 family of superb quality glass TLC plates features the same unmodified silica 60 used in the MH SIL G-25 glass plates, but with a special binder that results in a hard, resilient, water resistant and wettable surface with outstanding separation properties and distinct selectivities.

The DURASIL-25 plates are available with or without a green fluorescence 254 nm indicator. DURASIL-25 plates show superior separation characteristics in the fields of environmental, clinical, medical and organic analyses. Substances separated so far include flavonoids, barbiturates, bile, acids, nitroanilines, pesticides and steroids.

Rose Scientific supplies all of Macherey-Nagel’s high quality TLC and HPTLC plate products, including ready to use plates with these layers: Standard Silica (including SIL G and the DURASIL hard surface featured here), Unmodified Silica for HPTLC (including versions with SIL G and DURASIL), Modified Silica for HPTLC (including RP-18 W UV254 Reverse Phase), Aluminum Oxide, Cellulose (modified and unmodified), and Layers for special separations (including CHIRALPLATE). Most products are available with or without fluorescent indicators.

See the ordering information on the most popular Macherey-Nagel products Rose provides: Standard unmodified SIL G, unmodified DURASIL with a special binder for a harder surface (below), Reverse Phase RP-18 W UV254, and CHIRALPLATE for enantiomer separation. Call Rose Scientific for pricing on other products such as Macherey-Nagel’s Nano-DURASIL-20, a High Performance (HPTLC) version of DURASIL plates featuring smaller particle sizes and narrower particle size distribution.

Macherey-Nagel 20 × 20 cm TLC Plates
Features of the unmodified DURASIL TLC plates with hard surface binder:
  • Silica 60, specific surface (BET) ~ 500 m2/g, mean pore size 60 Å, specific pore volume 0.75 mL/g, particle size 5-17 µm
  • Hard, water-resistant and wettable layers due to a special binder system
  • No reversed phase tendency, more polar than standard grade Silica 60 (Macherey-Nagel Sil G)
  • Available as glass plates with or without fluorescent indicator
