Product description

This textbook aims to present the knowledge which is necessary for everyday HPLC measurements to be made, in a detailed and easy-to-follow manner. It contains a wealth of practical material and covers a wide range of subjects. Topics covered include principles, instrumentation, reverse-phase, ion-exchange, ion-pair, ion, size-exclusion and affinity chromatography, as well as analytical methods, preparative HPLC and enantiomeric separations. Appendices provide information on instrument testing, troubleshooting, column-packing.

Review quote

"This book is very much "an aid to this end" and should be number one on every young chromatographer's book list. The publishers too have played their part in producing a book that is pleasing on the eye and a pleasure to read." (Chromatographia, 1 December 2010)
