Research Facility: High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)
Description: High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) HPLC is a technique is used by the chemist to separate, identify, and quantify each component in a mixture. Here, a pressurized solvent or mixture of solvents containing the analyte is passed through a column filled with a solid adsorbent material. Each component in the sample interacts differently with the adsorbent material in the column, causing different flow rates for the different components and leading to the separation of the component
