Advantages of Gas Chromatography (GC) over Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC)

Chromatography is a separation science which has made remarkable contributions to advances in fields such as pharmaceuticals, foods, nutraceuticals, environmental monitoring, forensics, cosmetics and life sciences. The potential for applications are enormous and new ones are being reported on an impressive scale. Chromatography evolved over the years from simple column chromatography to paper chromatography to […]

Special considerations for identification and detection in Thin Layer Chromatography

Thin Layer chromatography presents a low cost, simple and sensitive option for identification and estimation of individual components in a mixture of components. The popular choices offered are Paper chromatography and HPTLC or High Performance Thin layer chromatography. Each of these techniques comprises essentially of a plane surface of paper or a metallic glass plate […]
