Chromatographic separation is widely used in many scientific disciplines today, having an ever increasing number of scientific and technological applications. The widespread use of this rapid and powerful technique requires that it be fully understood, so that the most suitable may be determined for each possible separation problem in each possible domain of scientific research and technology. Molecular Basis of Chromatographic Separation provides complete coverage of the practical and molecular aspects of this popular technique. It compiles and evaluates recent results, outlines available methods, and discusses how to select the best method for a particular application.
