Zebron ZB-1 GC Columns
Zebron ZB-1 Gas Chromatography (GC) column offers low bleed (MS Certified), low activity, and high efficiency and is an excellent USP G42 phase
Zebron ZB-1 GC Columns
Low Polarity For a Wide Range of Applications

  • Low polarity phase suited for true boiling point compounds
  • Low bleed (MS Certified), low activity, and high efficiency
  • Excellent resolving power of critical pairs in complex petrochemical samples
  • Used for “fingerprinting” and routine quality control analyses (e.g., citrus oils)
  • Equivalent to USP Phase G2
  • Temperature Limits: 60 to 360/370 ˚C (Isothermal/TPGC)*
