Supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) is a rapidly developing laboratory technique for the separation and identification of compounds in mixtures. Significant improvements in instrumentation have rekindled interest in SFC in recent years and enhanced its standing in the scientific community. Many scientists are familiar with column liquid chromatography and its strengths and weaknesses, but the possibilities brought to the table by SFC are less well-known and are underappreciated.

Supercritical Fluid Chromatography is a thorough and encompassing reference that defines the concept of contemporary practice in SFC and how it should be implemented in laboratory science. Given the changes that have taken place in SFC, this book presents contemporary aspects and applications of the technique and introduces SFC as a natural solution in the larger field of separation science. The focus on state-of-the-art instrumental SFC distinguishes this work as the go-to reference work for those interested in implementing the technique at an advanced level.

About Colin F. Poole

Colin F. Poole, PhD, received his BSc in Chemistry from the University of Leeds followed by graduate studies at the University of Bristol (MSc in Analytical Chemistry) and PhD at the University of Keele. He has been a professor in the Department of Chemistry at Wayne State University, Detroit, MI, for 35 years. Dr. Poole is a polychromatographer with broad interests in the separation and detection of small molecules in biological, environmental, and food samples, sample preparation technology, and computer-aided data analysis techniques. He is the author of more than 325 research papers, an editor of the Journal of Chromatography, and a member of the editorial boards of 5 other analytical chemistry journals. In 1985 he received the Tswett Medal of the International Symposium Advances in Chromatography; in 1991 the Jubilee Medal of the Chromatographic Society; and in 1997 a DSc from the University of Leeds, UK.
