Liquid chromatography is first being discovered by a Russian botanist, Mikhail Tsvet. Tsvet had rose the idea of liquid chromatography when he tried to purify and separate the coloured plant pigments by using a liquid-adsorption column containing calcium carbonate in 1890s. He also applied his observations with filter paper extraction to the new techniques for analysis the components in the petroleum. The filter paper extraction is the precursor of paper chromatography. He also found that the polarities of the solvents were important when during the separation to ensure that the solutes which were non-polar and polar can be separated efficiently.
Dalton’s law, as described before, states that the sum of the partial pressures of each component in a solution – two or more volatile compounds – is equal to the total pressure. As this now includes more than one compound when separating volatile substances from each other, fractional distillation must be used. Fractional distillation, which can be viewed as a series of simple distillations, is a method used to separate volatile impurities from its solvent. The main difference is that a column is introduced between distillation flask and head to separate the liquids from each other. This column – of a large surface area with glass or ceramic – provides ample contact between the vapor and liquid phases.
During the process a mixture is separated into several parts called fractions. Mixtures contain different substance with different boiling points, the differences in boiling points is the main reason fractional distillation is effective. The temperature at which a phase change occurs from liquid to vapor is the boiling point. Fractional distillation Column Fractional distillation column is a fractionating column used for separating a mixture into its various
Gas Chromatography Principle: A sample to be analysed is injected into the chromatography instrument. The sample solution enters a gas stream which transports the sample into a separation tube which is also known as the column. Various components in the sample solution separated inside the column. GC has principles similar to fractional distillation. Both processes separate mixture based on boiling point.
MM 3320 : Report Mass Spectrometry Submitted by Velu K R NA12B033 Introduction Mass Spectroscopy is an instrumental method for identifying the chemical constitution of a substance by means of the separation of gaseous ions according to their differing mass and charge. This method helps identify the amount and type of chemicals present
GC-MS (Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry): GC (Gas Chromatography): Gas chromatography is a method which is used for the separation and analysis of organic compounds (i.e. volatile compounds). For separation prime factor is volatility i.e. more volatile compounds elute first from the column and then detected by detector. It is used for testing the purity and isolating of compounds.
INTRODUCTION A gas chromatograph (GC) can be utilized to analyze the contents of a sample quantitatively or in certain circumstances also qualitatively. In the case of preparative chromatography, a pure compound can be extracted from a mixture. The principle of gas chromatography can be explained as following: A micro syringe is used to inject a known volume of vaporous or liquid analyte into the head or entrance of a column whereby a stream of an inert gas acts a carrier (mobile phase). The column acts as a separator of individual or chemically similar components. A column is typically packed with a stationary non-volatile matter (stationary phase).
DETERMINATION OF PERCENTAGE ETHANOL IN BEVERAGES 1. Introduction to Gas Chromatography Gas chromatography is a very powerful separation technique for compounds that are reasonably volatile. The components of a sample partitions into two phases, the 1st of these phases is a immobile bed with a great surface area, and the other is a gas phase that permeates through the immobile bed. The sample is evaporated and passed by the mobile gas phase or the carrier gas through the column. Samples separates into the stationary liquid phase, based on their solubilities at the given temperature.
Chromatography means "color writing" literally from the Greek words chroma and graphe. It is a separating technique for a mixture of chemicals, which can be in gas or liquid form, by letting them creep slowly past another substance. There are two important things in chromatography that is it must has one state of matter such as gas or liquid, that is known as mobile phase, moving over the surface of another state of matter which can be liquid or solid that stays where it is that is known as stationary phase. As the mobile phase moves, it separates out into its components on the stationary phase and identify one by one afterwards.

However, this method has been modiﬁed suitably under controlled conditionsand has become an industrial tool for partial separation of fatty acids. Temperature-controlled crystallization has been used inthe industry to separate the oleic acid rich fraction from amixture of oleic and linoleic acids. The main disadvantage of this process is poor separation, as the separation is only based on the solidiﬁcation point, resulting in the contamination of each fraction of the acids with high levels of other acid
