RP-18 W/UV254 glass plates features octadecyl-modified silica layers with a fluorescent indicator for use in high performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC). They can be used in normal phase or reversed phase separation modes, with eluents from anhydrous solvents to mixtures with high concentrations of water. The relative polarity of the eluent determines the polarity of the layer.
