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.
