The structure of a C18 phase based on titania (C18-A), synthesized by the method of solution polymerization, is investigated by diffuse reflectance infrared Fourier transform (DRIFT) and solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. The findings are compared with the results of a second C18 phase based on titania (C18-B) which was synthesized by the method of surface hydrosilation. The dynamic behavior of both phases is examined by1H MAS NMR detection of spinlattice relaxation times in the rotating frame (T1pH) and conventional spin-lattice relaxation times (T1). Due to a smaller ligand density, phase C18-A appears to be a somewhat more mobile than phase C18-B.

The chromatographic capability of the phase C18-A is demonstrated by the separation of samples containing benzene derivates or anilines. The elution order is analogous to the phase C18-B, but for both test mixtures the polarity of the mobile phase has to be increased. Phase C18-A is classified as being polymeric by the Sander and Wise test, whereas phase C18-B shows intermediate retention behavior.
