Thin Layer Chromatography and Column Chromatography Experiment

Thin Layer & Column Chromatography By: Lisa Mickey Introduction                 Thin layer chromatography (also known as TLC) is the physical separation of a mixture into its individual components by distributing the components between a stationary phase (the porous TLC plate) and a mobile phase (the solvent that moves through the stationary phase and carries the material that needs to be separated.  The driving force to separate components is capillary action.  This method can be […]
