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.
