Short description Established as a standard text for Thin layer chromatography (TLC) this new edition features a completely revised chapter on documentation, now including the use of digital cameras. Selected new sorbents and instruments are also introduced.
From the contents INTRODUCTION What is TLC? When is TLC used? Where is TLC used How is the result of a TLC represented? What kinds of reference substances are used in TLC? The literature on TLC PRECOATED LAYERS Why use precoated layers? How are precoated layers produced? What kinds of precoated layers are there? What are precoated layers used for? Criteria for choosing stationary phases in TLC Effect of the stationary phase when the solvents are identical Recommendations for the procurement and storage of precoated layers Problems in the nomenclature and classification of precoated layers BEFORE TLC DEVELOPMENT Handling of the precoated layers Prewashing Activation Conditioning Impregnation Application of the sample Positioning of the sample Drying before development SOLVENT, DEVELOPING CHAMBERS AND DEVELOPMENT Solvent TLC developing chambers Development of thin-layer chromatograms Drying after development EVALUATION WITHOUT DERIVATIZATION Visual direct evaluation Optical direct evaluation using special equipment Coupling methods for substance identification Documentation without or before derivatization DERIVATIZATION Thermochemical reaction Irradiation with high energy light Reaction with reagents Special types of derivatization Treatment of derivatized chromatograms EVALUATION AFTER DERIVATIZATION Visual evaluation Evaluation by TLC scanner Evaluation by video system Evaluation by flat-bed scanner DOCUMENTATION Description of a thin-layer chromatogram Documentation by reproduction, tracing or photocopying Photographic documentation Video documentation TLC scanner documentation Flat-bed scanner documentation GMP/GLP-CONFORMING TLC WORK Validation of TLC methods Use of qualified calibrated equipment GMP/GLP-conforming rawdata sheets Examples of GMP/GLP-conforming testing procedures LOADING EFFECTS Definite loading of a substance TLC of sensitive substances SPECIAL METHODS IN TLC AMD - Automated Multiple Development OPLC - Overpressured Layer Chromatography HPPLC - High Pressure Planar Liquid Chromatography TLC-FID/FTID - Combination of TLC with Flame Ionization Detector or Flame Thermoionic Ionization Detector RPC - Rotation Planar Chromatography Appendix Chromatography and art References Abbreviations used Acknowledgements Market review
