What is analytical chromatography


In chromatography, every analytical problem is primarily a separation problem. If the mixture of substances is known, the compact and fluid phases can be selected according to general criteria or examples from the literature. If the sample composition is unknown, preliminary tests are advisable, thin-layer chromatography and IR spectroscopy being useful.
