Hi there.

I'm running glass columns with silica gel in them, and scintered glass
plugs.  I want to attach a small bit of rubber tubing to the end to enable
control of flow rate by a regulator mechanism.

The elutions involve chloroform and methanol.

Does Anybody make rubber tubing that doesn't disintegrate/dissolve/go white
upon contact with chloroform??

Any help much appreciated, thanks.
