Liquid Chromatography

Chromatography in which the mobile phase is a liquid (i.e., the sample is introduced into a liquid solvent which then flows through a fractionating column and to a detector). Separation of the sample components is accomplished via three different modes: 1. liquid/ liquid, in which the relative solubilities of sample components in two immiscible fluids (one of which is usually water) create separation; 2. liquid/solid, in which the relative adsorption of sample components on a solid adsorptive medium surface creates separation; and 3. molecular-size, in which separations are created because of the variations in effective molecular dimensions of the sample components in solution.
