MP EcoChrom Silica, GF-TLC, contains fluorescent indicator F254 and gypsum. They are produced from the same highly standardized raw material as the MP EcoChrom Silica for column chromatography. They are available with or without binder and with or without fluorescent indicators.
MP EcoChrom SILICA, GF-TLC is used as a suspending and thickening agent in pharmaceutical.A silica-based aerogel was used in the Stardust spacecraft to collect extraterrestrial particles. Silica is also used in the extraction of DNA and RNA due to its ability to bind to the nucleic acids under the presence of chaotropes. As hydrophobic silica it is used as a defoamer component. In hydrated form, it is used in toothpaste as a hard abrasive to remove tooth plaque. SiO2 has a number of distinct crystalline forms (polymorphs) in addition to amorphous forms. In the majority of silicates, the Si atom shows tetrahedral coordination, with 4 oxygen atoms surrounding a central Si atom.
