The PRP-h5 utilizes the PRP-3 as its base with a pentafluorinated modification, making it more hydrophobic in nature. The PRP-h5, with its functionality derived from a pentafluorinated polymer bead, delivers a selectivity difference from standard silica C18 stationary phases. This gives chromatographers the desired retention characteristics necessary for certain sample types. This difference is especially pronounced for halogenated solutes.
Unlike silica-based C8 or C18 columns, PRP-h5 has no stationary phase coating. Since there is no stationary phase to hydrolyze, the column maintains its performance characteristics longer than many silica-based C8 or C18 columns.
