Practice of Thin Layer Chromatography,
3rd Edition by Joseph C. Touchstone
[table of contents listed below]
This Third Edition provides all the basic applications needed to practice thin layer chromatography (TLC). New material includes: the latest techniques on sample preparation and zone detection; the hybridization of TLC with high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) as it has been developing over the last few years; emphasis on numerous applications of HPTLC involving pharmaceuticals and drugs, plus the fundamental studies of mechanisms, theories and the optimization of TLC.

NOTE:This book has been electronically reproduced from digital information stored at John Wiley & Sons, Inc. This technology allows for a book to continue to be sold long after the last printing as long as there is reasonable demand.Since its publication over a decade ago, this book has helped countless analytical chemists learn how to actually perform planar, or thin-layer chromatography. Using a clear, step-by-step approach, this valuable guide outlines the procedural basics of thin layer chromatography, detailing specifics of each step in single chapters.Using the same methodical, hands-on format, this new Third Edition provides users of and novices in TLC with an unprecedented look at the state of the sciences in TLC. This book includes an expanded discussion of sample preparation with an enhanced look at applications. There is also a more detailed description of new scanners both for isotopes and densitometry, reflecting the recent advances in this area, and new chapters on bonded phases and reactions in situ. The advent of solid phase extraction devices, an entirely new development since the last edition, is described at length. The widening use of TLC analysis in pharmaceuticals and drugs, particularly drugs of abuse is clearly detailed.
