We have EnviroSep ABC column in our lab on which methylene chloride was used as a mobile phase. We are starting a new project and using hexane as an extraction solvent. My question is whether hexane is a compatible solvent with the column's stationary phase (I did some quick search online and couldn't find any reference to that on my own), and if it is, whether it is okay to do it on the same column that methylene chloride has been used before?

Thanks in advance.
