Dry column chromatographyDry column chromatography
Dry Column Chromatography (DCC)

Dry column chromatography (DCC) is a versatile Prep LC method. Basically, any sample that can be separated on silica gel or neutral alumina TLC plate can also be separated by the corresponding DCC-setup. The dry-column procedure has been successfully applied for the preparation of dye-stuffs, alkaloids, and other heterocyclic substances which are known to be separated on other types of columns, but, with considerable difficulties. Lipids have also been successfully separated.

Dry column chromatography bridges the gap between analytical TLC and preparative classical column chromatography. The cost is much less than the cost incurred for instrumental pressure associated with preparative liquid chromatography.



Flash Column Chromatography (FCC)

Dynaflash flash column chromatographyFlash chromatography offers an affordable, simple, fast, and convenient solution for the purification of synthetic and natural organic compounds from crude mixtures. It plays a critical role in the purification of natural plant alkaloids. Due to modularity of design and ease of use flash has become the scale-up process in the purification of products initially isolated using thin-layer chromatography (TLC) chemistry. Prepackaged flash columns are offered with more than 30 different phase chemistries having corresponding TLC plates. Using either isocratic or gradient elution techniques with flash chromatography it is possible to separate out a desired compound(s) on a single run.
