Silica Gel Desiccants in Thin Layer Chromatography

September 27, 2016


Understanding Thin layer Chromatography

Thin layer chromatography is a widely used form of chromatography. This type of chromatography mainly finds use in the separation process of non-volatile mixtures. Thin-layer chromatography consists of both a stationary phase as well as a mobile phase. The stationary phase is usually an adsorbent like Silica Gel, Aluminium Oxide or Cellulose. The thin-layer chromatography process works by the molecular adsorbent like Silica Gel absorbing the different components of the mixture, which has to be separated, at different levels. The adsorbents for thin-layer chromatography are always decided in such a manner that they will quicken as well as improve the separation as well as the subsequent purification process.
