A new line of high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) columns from Diamond Analytics, Orem, Utah, helps expand the existing range of analytical capabilities in separation science. Composed of a solid, spherical carbon core and a porous nano-diamond shell, Flare columns provide a stationary phase that permits lab scientists and technicians to perform separations not possible on a standard silica C18 column. The composite material creates a permeable, stable particle that can tolerate high temperatures and high pH separation conditions. Nano-diamonds also have a much higher thermal conductivity when compared to silica. As a result, Flare columns offer expanded pH range capability (2–13), elevated temperature ranges (up to 100 °C), increased longevity, and novel selectivity without compromising efficiency.
