Strata-X-C SPE Products

Strong Cation Mixed-Mode Solid Phase Extraction (SPE)

A strong cation-exchange functionalized polymeric sorbent that allows for complete retention of basic compounds with a pKa less than 10.5, making 100% organic wash conditions possible. A 100% organic wash ensures that the maximum amount of interferences are removed from the target compound.

Recommended Use
Extraction of weakly basic compounds

3 Mechanism of Retention

Strong Cation-Exchange

π-π Bonding

Available Formats

96-Well Plates
Microelution 96-Well Plates
1, 3, and 6 mL Tubes
Giga™ Tubes (12-150 mL Tubes)
On-line Extraction Columns and Cartridges

Starting Method

For Bases with pKa ≤ 10.5

1 mL Methanol
1 mL Acidified Water
Diluted Acidified Sample
Wash 1:
1 mL 0.1 N HCI in Water (collect this fraction to analyze Polar Neutrals)
Wash 2:
1 mL 0.1 N HCI in Methanol (collect this fraction to analyze Neutrals/Acids)
Elute Bases:
2x 500 µL 5 % NH4OH in Methanol

Based on 30 mg/1 mL sorbent mass. The above is a convenient starting point for SPE method development, further optimization may be required to tailor the method for your specific extraction needs.
