Chromatography is the collective term for a set of laboratory techniques for the separation of mixtures. It involves passing a mixture dissolved in a "mobile phase" through a stationary phase, which separates the analyte to be measured from other molecules in the mixture and allows it to be isolated. Chromatography may be preparative or analytical. The purpose of preparative chromatography is to separate the components of a mixture for further use (and is thus a form of purification). Analytical chromatography is done normally with smaller amounts of material and is for measuring the relative proportions of analytes in a mixture. This new and important book gathers the latest research from around the globe in the study of chomatography and herein highlights such topics as: analysis of veterinary drugs using chromatographic techniques, liquid chromatography for the determination of mycotoxins in foods, chromatography in the research of phenolic secondary metabolites, and others.
