Emphasizing specific interactions between solutes and stationary/mobile phases, this important reference guide details various choices in optimizing chromatographic separations. It gives chemists an in-depth account of chromatographic phenomena, including valuable information on separating enantiomers as well as the relationship between TLC and HPLC.
Complete with more than 140 diagrams, photographs, and tables, plus 1,400 bibliographic citations, Modern Thin-Layer Chromatography discusses various stationary phases employed in chromatography so that chemists can improve their mastery of the techniques ... provides solutions to optimizing separations difficult to perform under normal conditions ... shows chemists how to optimize an HPLC separation using TLC as a pilot technique ... focuses special attention on chiral separation ... and considers quantitation, instrumentation, and new perspectives in TLC. Modern Thin-Layer Chromatography is an outstanding resource for chromatographers; analytical, organic, and forensic chemists; biochemists; pharmacists; biotechnologists as well as graduate students in these disciplines. Not only are these references classics, they form the perfect trio ever assembled for the serious thin layer chromatographer.
You will rarely need to look any further than this mini library for information on TLC theory, techniques, instrumentation, or applications. They contain a wealth of expertise from the practitioner point of view and provide many practical tips on the application of TLC. The practical detail can potentially save many hours of laboratory experimentation.
