Definition of Chromatography History of Chromatography Chromatography terms Classification of Chromatography Chromatograph Applications of Chromatography

Is the collective term for a family of laboratory techniques for the separation of mixtures Involves passing a mixture which contains the analyte through a stationary phase, which separates it from other molecules in the mixture and allows it to be isolated
‡ Analyze

‡ Identify ‡ Purify



‡ Quantify

who used columns of calcium carbonate for separating plant pigments During the 1940s and 1950s.History 1903. They established the principles and basic techniques of partition chromatography Since then. the technology has advanced rapidly . Mikhail Semyonovich Tsvet.

either a liquid in LC or gas in GC . Can be a particular solid or gel-based packing (LC) or a highly viscous liquid coated on the inside of the column (GC) Mobile phase: Solvent moving through the column.Chromatography Terms The analyte is the substance that is to be separated during chromatography Stationary phase: Phase that stays in place inside the column.

Linear velocity: Distance passed by mobile phase per 1min in the column (cm/min) . Chromatogram: Graph showing detector response as a function of a time.Eluent: Fluid entering a column Eluate: Fluid exiting the column Elution: The process of passing the mobile phase through the column. Flow rate: How much mobile phase passed / minute (ml/min).

column chrotography .Column Chromatography The stationary phase (column packing) in the column is very polar One starts will a less polar solvent to remove the less polar compounds. and then you slowly Increase the polarity of the solvent to remove the more polar compounds Figure 1. solvent column Bands of separated consistuents .

.larger Rf .Thin Layer Chromatography Here the mobile phase is a liquid Flowing past a thin layer of powder on a solid support Substances that are less attracted to the solid or are more soluble in the liquid move faster And so move further up the plate by the time that the process has been stopped by taking the plate out of the liquid.

. retained longer than large molecules. therefore.Size exclusion Chromatography GEL-PERMEATION CHROMATOGRAPHY Gel-Permeation Chromatography is a mechanical sorting of molecules based on the size of the molecules in solution. Small molecules are able to permeate more pores and are.

Ion. .exchange Chromatography Separation in Ion-exchange Chromatography is based on the competition of different ionic compounds of the sample for the active sites on the ion-exchange resin (columnpacking).

Liquid Chromatography Liquid chromatography (LC) is a separation technique in which the mobile phase is a liquid. use high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) Figure 4 . HPLC 1525 . Liquid chromatography can be carried out either in a column or a plane Present day.

Gas Chromatography Principals of Separation Column is selected. packed with Liquid Phase. and installed. Sample vapor becomes partitioned between Moving Gas Phase and Stationary Liquid Phase The time the different compounds in the sample spend in the Vapor Phase is a function of their Vapor Pressure. argon). The more volatile (Low Boiling Point / Higher Vapor Pressure) compounds arrive at the end of the column first and pass into the detector . Sample injected with microliter syringe into the injection port where it is vaporized and mixed into the Carrier Gas stream (helium. nitrogen.
