Chromatography is a method of separating the compounds from a mixture. This mixture dissolved in fluid will be mobile phase and the material which is holding structure is known as stationary phase. This technique is mostly used in analytical, preparative, industries and in laboratories as well. Chromatography is a physical technique which has a vast application in chemical field from basic analytical chemistry to forensic science.
There is a continues advances in improving the technical performance of chromatography that are allowing the separation increase in similarly molecules. Chromatography has also been involved in a method for testing the potency of cannabis.
Some of chromatography techniques:
Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC)
Supercritical Fluid Chromatography
High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)
Expanded Bed Adsorption (EBA) Chromatography
Simulated moving-bed chromatography
Periodic counter-current chromatography
Pyrolysis gas chromatography
Hydrophobic interaction chromatography
Fast protein liquid chromatography
Aqueous normal-phase chromatography
