Considered a leading "green" purification technology, Supercritical Fluid Chromatography (SFC) systems from Waters Corporation are used to separate and isolate chiral and achiral chemical compounds. The principles of SFC are similar to those of liquid chromatography; however, SFC typically uses carbon dioxide as the main mobile phase. Carbon dioxide offers environmental and cost benefits compared to liquid chromatography solvents.
Waters´ SFC and other supercritical fluid systems, including supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) systems are used in pharmaceutical, life science, chemical and petrochemical companies, as well as government agencies, research institutions and universities. In a world seeking renewable technologies for solving waste and disposal problems, Waters seeks to fill the void with innovative "green" chemistry solutions.
By combining Thar´s advanced SFC instrumentation with Waters chromatography expertise, Waters is committed to bringing the benefits of SFC to more laboratories for analytical and purification applications worldwide. For those laboratories overwhelmed with solvent disposal and time–consuming solvent cleanup, SFC is an alternative that has attracted much attention.
