Chemical Compatibility Results

Chemical rating key:

A= Little to no Interaction
B= Slight Interaction
C= Not Recommended

Please do not use methanol with PtO2 catalyst, as the generated platinum nanoparticles can easily come out from the cartridge causing blockage in the system. For the PtO2 catalyst we recommend to use isopropyl - alcohol to avoid the nanoparticles formation.

Please do not use acetic acid with Raney Ni.

Please note that cyclohexane and toluene are not recommended solvents as they can interact with the sealing of the HPLC pump.

TFA compatibility with SS316:at 71 °C (30-day test): 0.07 Mils/yr (Source)

Please note that AcCN should not be used as solvent since it may get hydrogenated instead or parallel with your starting material.
