Column Chromatography

INTRODUCTION

Matteucci first described the column use in the determination of the solutes in the solvents. Kuhn and Lederer explained the column chromatography theory by observing the separation of the polyene pigments.

PRINCIPLE

This is based on the affinity towards the mobile phase and stationary phase. The molecules which are more affine towards the stationary phase elute later and which are less affine towards the stationary phase elutes first.
