I don't think that these would be equivalent. From what I understand of
the procedure provided the result is a matrix with *phenolic* groups exposed
(with -OH) whereas the Phenyl Sepharose uses the -OH to couple to the matrix
so leaving a *benzyl* group exposed. Hence the recommendation of Phenyl-
Sepharose for hydrophobic interaction chromatography (and for some proteins
it works really well). I don't know of any commercial chromatography matrix
that's equivalent to StrataClean (and since Stratagene hold the patent....).
On a related note, Pharmacia used to give a protcol for DNA purification
by FPLC using a MonoQ column (anion exchange). Has anyone tried this,
with good results eg. for plasmids?

but I am a satisfied FPLC user - okay Dr. Frasca !?)
