Micellar Liquid Chromatography reviews the use of surfactant solutions at or above the critical micelle concentration as mobile phases in liquid chromatography. It employs a computer-assisted optimization methodology and integrates micellar liquid chromatography (MLC) with other chromatographic and electrophoretic techniques using surfactants. It also includes the MICHROM software package on CD-ROM to facilitate the application of equations and optimize efficiency of MLC systems.
"…written by experienced analysts dealing with micellar separation techniques for a long time…. …useful not only for people wanting to start analyses with micellar liquid chromatography but also for people already working in related fields such as the separation method using micelles and capillary electroresis or electrochromatography."
