Ch rom ato gra phy Is a technique used to separate and identify the components of a mixture. Works by allowing the molecules present in the mixture to distribute themselves between a stationary and a mobile medium. Molecules that spend most of their time in the mobile phase are carried along faster. 100’s of free ppt’s from www.pptpoint.com library

Gas Liquid Chromatography Here the mobile phase is an unreactive gas ( eg Nitrogen) flowing through a tube. And the stationary phase is an involatile liquid held on particles of a solid support.

T hin L ayer C hromatography Here the mobile phase is a liquid Flowing past a thin layer of powder on a solid support. Substances that are less attracted to the solid or are more soluble in the liquid move faster.
