Webinar Title: A Three-Course Meal with a Tall Glass of Supercritical Fluid


The advantages of modern supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) are indisputable. SFC can provide significant improvements in many aspects of challenging separations and chromatographic efficiency. However, SFC systems, both analytical and preparative, have historically been beset with many sour traits. Recently, scientists were able to address these deficiencies through collaborative development, rendering SFC a viable and useful analytical and preparative technology.

SFC has recently made significant progress in many application areas, particularly for chiral analysis, and the high-throughput purification of chiral and achiral pharmaceutical compounds in support of drug discovery. The webinar will highlight application and performance data from the Nexera UC series of SFC instrumentation.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding the advantages and disadvantages of SFC
  • How SFC can be applied to analytical and preparative workflows
  • A novel approach to address specific application needs
  • Modern perspectives on the use of analytical and preparative SFC

Who Should Attend:

  • Method developers for SFC methods in pharmaceutical, foods and cosmetics, chemical, environmental, agrichemical, contract research organization, university, and governmental laboratories.

• Scientists analyzing or purifying chiral and achiral compounds, structural isomers, hydrophobic compounds, or seeking orthogonal selectivity in chromatography.
