This work introduces scientists of all disciplines to the chromatographic process and how it functions. The basic principles of chromatographic separation and specific chromatographic procedures, including gas, liquid and thin-layer chromatography, are covered. For each separation method the book details its characteristics, the instrumentation required, the procedures necessary for effective use, areas of application and examples of its use.;This work is intended for analytical chemists, laboratory technicians, and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in analytical chemistry or separation science courses.
"Excellent discussions and practical advice are provided for the selection of stationary and mobile phases, as well as the exact type of chromatography needed to accomplish a separation. "
