Since its invention by the Russian botanist Mikhail Semyonovich Tsvet in 1901 [1], chromatography has evolved into a flexible analytical technique of which there are many permutations with various applications both in academia and industry, and is considered the most versatile of all methods of chemical analysis. Chromatography is used in the separation of compounds according to their distribution between two phases.
The compound mixture is dissolved in a fluid known as mobile phase, which carries it through a structure holding another material known as stationary phase. The various constituents of the compound mixture travel at different speeds due to differences in the compound's partition coefficient which allows the separation based on differential partitioning between the two phases resulting in differential retention on the stationary phase, thus performing the separation. Nowadays, the use of chromatography is associated with a wide range of detection systems, including electrochemical, photometric and mass spectrometry, and plays a vital role in the advancement of science. The authors of Chromatography - the Most Versatile Method of Chemical Analysis have contributed chapters which focus on purification, analysis, models, retention parameters and sample preparation with different applications in biotechnology, ecology, environment, food and toxicology. Finally, I am most happy to have received contributions from internationally renowned contributors from different parts of the world join us to report on their traditional and innovative approaches, as well as reviews of the most relevant and impacting aspects of chromatography. I hope that readers of this book will find new ideas, approaches and inspiration to solve separation problems.
Finally, I would like to thank all the authors and Mr. Oliver Kurelic for their contributions and their cooperation throughout the previous year.
